USDJPY Chart by TradingView

What can we expect from USDJPY today?

USDJPY on Thursday dropped -0.3% to 130.78. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.

Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 130.66 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 130.94 or trades above daily pivot 130.8. While to the downside, the daily low of 130.68 and 130.66 (S1) as immediate support levels. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 130.68 would indicate selling pressure.

For the week to-date, take note that USDJPY is bearish as the pair posted lower by -0.9%.
