What can we expect from USDJPY for the new week and what happened on Friday?
USDJPY on Friday rose 0.44% to 134.82. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2023-05-05, the pair dropped -1.04% or -142.1 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, USDJPY looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 133.50.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 137.77 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 135.36. On the downside, we are looking at week low 133.50 or 132.95 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 133.50 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of May, USDJPY is down by -1.04% or -142.1 pips lower.
