    "Things are calming down considerably. But the dollar may fall below ¥118, if Shanghai stocks lose momentum again. It seems the dollar may find it top heavy above 118.50."
    - Aozora Bank (based on Market Watch)

    Pair's Outlook
    The USD/JPY approached the up-trend on Thursday, but was unable to maintain trade below it, as the monthly S2 was providing additional support. For the first time this week there has been a rebound in Asian stocks, which contributed to the JPY weakness, allowing the US Dollar to take the upper hand and regain the bullish momentum after confirming the support trend-line. Gains could well extend beyond the monthly S1 at 118.93, unless the US fundamentals have a negative impact on the pair and erase intraday gains. The three-year up-trend is expected to remain intact.

    Traders' Sentiment
    Only 42% of all open positions are long today (previously 44%). Meanwhile, the share of buy orders lost 10% points, falling to 43%.
