USD/JPY closed higher on Thursday as it consolidates some of the decline off January's high. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends the decline off January's high, December's low crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing would confirm an end to the corrective decline off January's high.
