What can we expect from USDJPY today?

USDJPY on Wednesday dropped -0.54% to 147.52. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.

Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 146.69 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 148.28 or trades above daily pivot 147.48. While to the downside, the daily low of 146.64 and 146.69 (S1) as immediate support levels. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 146.64 would indicate selling pressure.

For the week to-date, take note that USDJPY is mixed as compared to prior week.
