Forex technical analysis: USDJPY’s random walking today

Lots of chopThe USDJPY is «random walking» today in a choppy up-and-down motion.  

The price high did move above a swing area that has had a number of swing levels. That area is also the low of a box that trading has mostly been centered.  Stay outside the box and it is more bearish.  
Anyway, the move «into the box» and above the lower yellow area at 113.51-58  failed.  
We are staying below that area (from 113.51-58) giving more of a bearish look to the choppy action. 
Having said that the downside is not exactly running. We also remain above the 50% at 113.187. Yesterday that level was broken and failed.  It is a target for sellers to get to and through.
So who gets the nod?
I give more of the technical nod to the shorts as long as we remain outside the box and below the 113.51-58 area. 
PS Of note today is the US yields are higher in trading today with 10 year up 3.7 bps at 2.3788%. Earlier this week the note was down testing the 200 day MA at 2.31%. That test was successful for now at least.  Higher yields tend to support the USDJPY, but not so much today.
