What can we expect from USDJPY for the new week and what happened on Friday?

USDJPY on Friday dropped -0.16% to 149.51. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising. For the week ending 2023-10-13, the pair rose 0.16% or 24.1 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, USDJPY looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Friday trading session.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 149.83 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 149.17. On the downside, we are looking at week low 148.16 or 148.51 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 149.83 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of October, USDJPY is up by 0.12% or 18.5 pips higher.
