-The USDJPY is above the line that extends off of the May and July highs. That line is now estimated support.

-Price reversed shy of the August high on Tuesday and remains capped by upward sloping channel resistance. The inside day on Wednesday warns of a near term top.

-The Nikkei 225 is testing its May-July trendline and the risk of a false break in USDJPY remains as per concerns over the proximity of the break to the triangle’s apex.

Trading Strategy: Bias is long against 98.25. I am trading from the long side – real time comments can be found on Twitter @JamieSaettele. Have 98.65/75 as support in the event of a deeper pullback.

LEVELS: 98.27 98.75 99.37 | 99.94 100.40/60 100.97
