USDJPY jumps on the US/China tariff headlines
Runs up to 100 hour MA but backs off
The USDJPY jumped on the US/China tariff headline. The run higher took the price back up to the 100 hour moving average at 108.681, but the price has already back down toward the 108.53 level. A new low for the day was reached in the current hourly bar, but stalled at the 200 bar moving average on the 4 hour chart at 108.448.
