What can we expect from USDJPY today?
USDJPY on Thursday dropped -0.38% to 134.09. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling in overbought zone.
Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 133.74 (S1).
Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 134.97 or trades above daily pivot 134.36. While to the downside, the daily low of 134.01 and 133.74 (S1) as immediate support levels. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 134.01 would indicate selling pressure.
For the week to-date, take note that USDJPY is bullish as the pair continued to trade higher and is up by 0.24% over the past few days.
