With its attempted recovery failing following a sharp decline on Monday, the pair could be preparing to return to the 77.92 level, its July 23'2012 low. A breach of here will open the door for more weakness towards the 77.66 level where a violation will pave the way for a move further lower towards the 77.00 level.

Alternatively, the pair will have to break and hold above the 78.66 level followed by the 79.78 level, its declining trendline and the 80.59 level to reverse its bear threats. This if seen will bring gains towards the 81.77 level. Further out, resistance stands at the 82.53 level. All in all, USDJPY continues to face downside risk in the medium term.
