What can we expect from USDJPY today?
USDJPY on Thursday dropped -0.42% to 132.55. Price is neutral near 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.
Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Thursday trading session.
Looking ahead for the day, immediate support level is at 131.91 (S1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 131.27 (S2). To the upside, with the current momentum bearish, we prefer to look at breakout of the recent daily high of 133.39 as a potential indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below 132.01 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that USDJPY is mixed as compared to prior week.
