Strategy: Pending Long

USDJPY put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below the 84.00 figure and pushed lower, with prices now testing support at the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the 2/4-2/16 upswing (82.55). The barrier is reinforced by a falling trend line connecting recent lows, hinting this are may prove to be a reasonable place for a rebound. With that said, an actionable trade setup remains elusive and we will stay on the sidelines for now. Initial resistance lines up at 82.89, the 38.2% Fib.
