FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen
295 0 12
USD/JPY             extends lower after breaking strong trendline support at 112.95. WE have been short since 112.60

Heavy bearish bias continues, test of 110.50 likely, breaks below could see 110 levels.

BOJ March Tankan corporate price expectations survey showed that Japanese companies' long-term inflation expectations weakened in March from three months ago.

Tankan report on Friday showed that business confidence among large manufacturers declined sharply from +12 in Q4 to +6 in Q1, reaching its lowest level since Q2 2013.

Inflation expectations for three- and five-years ahead have never heightened since the survey began and are raising doubts over whether the BOJ’s stimulus measures are working.

The pair unable to hold on to gains the back of a solid non-farm payrolls report in the U.S. and a surprise positive in the ISM manufacturing in the same U.S. session.

We see Doji formation in the Asian session. Price action below daily cloud. Momentum studies bearish .

On the upside resistance is seen at 112, 112.14 (5-DMA) and then 112.48 (10-DMA).
