The USDJPY pair was seen struggling around the 122.00 resistance area and as a result the pair moved lower. There was a bullish trend line formed on the 4-hour chart, which was breached by the US dollar sellers. However, the best part is that there is one more trend line waiting on the downside for the pair to act as a support in the near term. We need to see how the pair trades moving ahead and whether it can trade back higher or move lower to challenge the next bullish trend line.
Intraday Support Level – 120.60
