General overview

The yen grew to the 3-week high when the Japanese Prime Minister approved a fiscal stimulus package.

The indicators MACD and RSI still generate sell signals. MACD decreased which indicates the sellers’ positions strength. RSI entered the oversold area.

Trading recommendations

The short term picture is bearish. We believe that this is essentially a “sell only” market at the moment. The nearest sellers' target lies at 100.40. We expect a short-term bullbacks towards 101.40.
