The US Dollar was in a crucial uptrend and traded above 114.00 against the Japanese Yen. However, it seems like the USD/JPY pair has made a short term top near 114.48 and poised for more declines.

The pair declined from 114.48 and broke a major bullish pattern with support at 113.80 on the 4 hours chart. It has opened the doors for more losses below 112.50 in the near term.

Recently, the pair found support and buyers near the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the 111.73 low to 114.48 high. At present, it is trading correcting higher, but still remains at risk around 113.80.

If the pair declines one more time and closed below 113.00, it may push the pair towards the 112.50 level. On the upside, the 113.80 90 levels are initial resistances.

US Initial Jobless Claims

Recently in the US, the Initial Jobless Claims for the week ending July 8, 2017 was released by the US Department of Labor. The market was positioned for a decrease from 248K to 245K. However, the result was slightly negative, as the last reading was revised to 250K, and the current was 247K.

Overall, the US Dollar may still face sellers and USD/JPY could retest the 112.80 90 zone.
