USDJPY price just reached 107.735 just below the 200 hour MA and 50% midpoint levels. However, the price is back at 107.81 as additional sellers did not bite on the first peek below that support level.
The British pound initially tried to rally during the trading session on Tuesday but gave back quite a bit of the gains as we turned around and sold off. At this point, the market looks likely to break down towards the ¥141 level, and then possibly the ¥140 level.

The British pound has pulled back against the US dollar during the week, reaching down to the 1.30 level before finding a little bit of support. We have received good economic numbers out of the United Kingdom, and that of course should be good for the British pound, but at the same time were worried about the US/China trade talks.
If we break down below the ¥109 level, it’s very likely that we will go looking towards the ¥108 level. This will probably coincide with bad news out of the trade talks, as the Japanese yen will be the safety currency of choice in that scenario. Having said that, there’s also the opposite scenario where the talks produce something substantial, and if they do it’s...
The focus for GBPUSD traders will now shift towards US CPI figures being released later today. Yearly inflation is expected to increase to 2.1% from 1.9% in March while monthly core inflation is expected to be 0.2%, up from 0.1%.
A follow-through weakness below the mentioned 50% Fibo. support near the 142.35-30 region will reinforce the bearish outlook and turn the cross vulnerable to accelerate the slide towards testing the 142.00 round figure mark en-route 141.30 zone.
