12/29/2008 â€“ USD/JPY â€“ Within the context of a continuing downtrend on the USD/JPY (a daily chart of which is shown), price action approaching the New Year has made a pullback retracement back up near a key downtrend resistance line (in red). This retracement reached a major support/resistance level around 91.00 (in yellow) before retreating, and now looks poised to continue its well-entrenched downtrend. Of course, a downtrend continuation would not be confirmed unless a subsequent breakdown below the 87.00 level occurs, which represents the last swing low within the downtrend. Therefore, the 87.00 region signifies major support to the downside. In the event of a strong break back up above the 91.00 region going into the New Year, which would also represent a break above the downtrend resistance line, price could target further major resistance in the 93.50 region.
