USDJPY is back below the 107.00 level
Today, the pair moved below the 200 bar MA on the 4-hour at 107.153. That also helped to tilt the bias back down.  For traders looking for more downside (and short), the 200 bar MA is a close risk level for the pair today. Stay below is more bearish. Move above is more bullish.  

The NASDAQ composite index is trading near session lows at 7859. That is down 96 points or -1.21%. The S&P index is also trading at lows, down -33.4 points or -1.4%.
