The focus has now shifted to post-Brexit lows around the 99.00 handle, as JPY has fully recovered last week losses to the 103.40 area.USD/JPY levels to considerAs of writing the pair is retreating 1.05% at 101.49 facing the immediate support at 99.08 (2016 low Jun.24) ahead of 96.55 (monthly low Oct. 8 2013) and then 95.70 (monthly low Aug.8 2013).
