Key quotes

“Japan published August National inflation figures, which missed expectations. Annual CPI increased by just 0.2%, while the core reading came in at -0.4% as expected. The US session will bring the preliminary estimate of the September Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index, foreseen at 75 from 74.1 in August.”

“The 4-hour chart shows that the USD/JPY pair keeps developing below a firmly bearish 20 SMA, while the larger ones slowly turn south well above the shorter one, signaling strong selling interest in the short-term. Technical indicators are directionless although well into negative territory.”

“The immediate support level is 104.18 July monthly low, with a break below it anticipating a steeper decline ahead.”
