    • USD/JPY beaten down on the dovish FOMC minutes, extending the drift lower after break below 200-DMA.
       
    • US data also disappointed with a big miss in US Durable Goods data adding to pressure on the USD.
       
    • The University of Michigan survey was also a drag, slipped in line with the ongoing caution around the inflation outlook.
       
    • Momentum indicator is bearish in oversold territory, while the RSI gains traction downwards around 35, suggesting more weakness.
       
    • The major is currently holding above 111 levels, we find minor support at 50% Fibo at 111.02.
       
    • Break below will see resumption of downside, scope then for test of 61.8% Fib at 110.15.
       
    • On the flipside, retrace above 200-DMA could invalidate our bearish bias.

    Support levels - 111.02 (50% Fib retrace of 107.318 to 114.73 rally), 110.61 (July 24 low), 110.30 (100W-SMA), 110.15 (61.8% Fib)

    Resistance levels - 111.71 (200-DMA), 111.93 (5-DMA), 112.19 (1H 100-SMA)
