Chart Signals: JPY weakens as a trading correction gets underway

Looking across today’s comments I’m seeing a lot of positive RSI divergences and overbought/oversold RSI conditions indicating that recent strong pulses were overdone and trading corrections appear to be underway. The Yen in particular has seen some of its recent strength start to erode.
