The pair is now on a second day of sell off following its failure to continue its recovery strength started from the 76.54 level. It looks like USDJPY could be building up downside momentum with the possibility of returning to the mentioned support at 76.54 level, its Jan 17'2012 low. If that level is taken out, further declines should shape up towards its 2011 low at 75.57 where a violation will aim at the 74.00 level ahead of the 73.00 level, all representing its psycho levels. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting this view. Alternatively, in order for the pair to restart its bullish strength, it will have to break and hold above the 78.20/27 levels. This will open up further upside towards the 79.49 level, its Oct 2011 high followed by the 81.47 level, its July 08'2011 high and subsequently the 82.21 level, its May 24'2011 high. All in all, USDJPY is biased to the downside long term which is consistent with its present bear threats.
