USDJPY on Wednesday dropped -1.41% to 138.37. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling in oversold zone.

Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Wednesday trading session.

Looking ahead for the day, immediate support level is at 137.62 (S1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 136.88 (S2). To the upside, with the current momentum bearish, we prefer to look at breakout of the recent daily high of 140.16 as a potential indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below 138.15 would indicate selling pressure.
