"USD/JPY is steadily toward closing levels not observed since early September with vulnerability to a decline toward the October 2nd low at 118.68." "Medium-term signals are also bearish as we consider the imminent crossing of the 50 day MA below the 200 day MA—also typically known as the ‘death cross’."
