    USD/JPY bottomed after the US employment report at 111.80 reaching the lowest since March 22 but then, after more economic data from the US (consumer confidence and ISM) it bounced to the upside above 112.40 as stock in Wall Street turned positive.

    Now the pair is moving again to the downside, approaching daily lows. It is trading at 111.85/90, down 55 pips for the day. The Japanese currency is the best performer across the board supported by falling US government bond yields

    USD/JPY bearish bias

    On a wider perspective, the pair continues to move with a bearish bias. On Tuesday it broke key short-term support levels (during Janet Yellen presentation in New York) falling from near 114.00 toward 112.00.

    During the last three days the pair moved mostly in ranges and sideways, but always keeping a bearish bias, making lower highs. Today actually printed a fresh low. A recovery above 112.80 could remove pressure and would give support to the US dollar.
