    USD/JPY chart - Trading View 

    USD/JPY was trading 0.05% high (largely unchanged) at 103.79 at around 06:10 GMT, after closing 0.06% lower on Thursday's trade.

    The pair has shown long upper wicks on the daily candle suggesting selling pressure at highs.

    US dollar remains under pressure after US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's decision to end pandemic relief for struggling businesses. 

    Dovish Fed expectations continued weighing on the USD and remained supportive of further downside in the pair.

    Price action continues to drift lower within its recent bearish channel. Major and minor trend are strongly bearish. Momentum with the bears.

    Minor support for the pair is seen at 103.17 (Nov 6th low). Break below finds little support till 101.70 (Trendline).

    On the flipside, 5-DMA is immediate resistance at 104.01. Bearish invalidation only above daily cloud.
