USD/JPY daily chart

 
 
The USD/JPY exchange rate is trading in a bear trend below its 100 and 200-day simple moving averages (DSMAs). However, the spot is attempting to find some support near the 50 SMA at the 106.90 level. The FOMC Minutes were a non-event with little market reaction. Chief’s Powell reiterated what most market players already know: “risks come from abroad, chances of a recession are limited and the economy overall is healthy.”
