New lows as stocks continue slide

The USDJPY is going out at the week’s lows for the London/European traders.

Looking at the hourly chart, the pair cracked below the lows from Tuesday and Wednesday at 105.480 and 105.513 respectively.  We currently trade at 105.35.  
Looking at the 5-minute chart, as per the earlier post, the 100 bar MA has done a good job of stalling the rallies in the London/NY session.  That also helped to give sellers to “go ahead” to probe lower.

Below that the March 2018 low comes in at 104.60. Bearish.
