Forex Trade Setups Commentary: USDJPY downtrend and pin bars, 10-6-10

The USDJPY hit a new multi-year low today as it fell to 82.75 before closing around 82.92. There is a strong support coming into play around current levels near 82.90. However, this market is looking quite bearish at the moment.

The trend is currently down in the USDJPY and as such strength remains a sell. The bearish pin bar setups that have formed recently on this daily chart of the USDJPY add further weight to the bearish bias of this chart.
