$USDJPY Bouncing Around Support Lows In Descending Channel, What If USDX Rallies

| |
Watch these levels on USD/JPY. I threw up the weekly, daily and 15 minute charts of USD/JPY. Watch the descending channel, near term support on the 15-minute (83.16) and the long term downtrend from 2008. If USD/JPY holds support here it could test that downtrend line and 50 day moving average resistance (not on chart). The trend is clearly down. But if $USDX rallies from here I'm wondering if there'd be a short squeeze. A trend violation would bring on a decent retracement. Something to watch going forward.
