USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 139.29; (P) 139.90; (R1) 140.67; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY stays on the upside at this point. Rise from 137.22 should extend to retest 145.05 high first. Firm break there will resume larger rise from 127.20 to 61.8% projection of 129.62 to 127.22 from 145.06 at 146.76 next. On the downside, below 139.74 minor support will bring retest of 137.22 instead.

In the bigger picture, overall price actions from 151.93 (2022 high) are views as a corrective pattern. Current development suggests that the second leg (the rise from 127.20) might not be over yet. But even in case of extended rise, strong resistance should be seen from 151.93 to limit upside. Meanwhile, break of 137.22 support should confirm the start of the third leg to 127.20 (2023 low) and below.
