Yesterday the Japanese yen fell against the dollar and leveled the trades’ wins. The Japan economic news showed the services sector activity decrease - the service sector purchasing managers’ index (PMI) fell below the level of 48.5 from 51.3 when it was expected 51.0. It reduced the PMI composite index, taking into account production and services to 50.0 from 51.7 in January. There was no change within the pair USD/JPY. It continues to trade below the 120th figure, although it was sold off on the dips to the local support near 119.25-119.45. In general, the pair is still in the consolidation phase where the risks of re-growth are still preserved.
The support levels: 119.05-119.25, and the resistance levels: 120.20-120.40.
The MACD indicator is in a positive territory.
However, the pair inability to rise up and consolidate above the 120th figure can trigger its decrease towards the 116th figure.
