USD/JPY closed slightly lower on Wednesday as it extends the trading range of the past four days. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends the decline off February's high, February's low crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing would confirm that a short-term bottom has been posted.
