What can we expect from USDJPY today?

USDJPY on Tuesday dropped -0.41% to 149.90. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling.

Updated daily direction for USDJPY looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 149.55 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 150.55 or trades above daily pivot 150.05. While to the downside, the daily low of 149.70 and 149.55 (S1) as immediate support levels. USDJPY need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below 149.70 would indicate selling pressure.

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