USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 144.92; (P) 145.40; (R1) 145.87; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY stays neutral for the moment. On the upside, sustained break of 61.8% projection of 129.62 to 145.06 from 137.22 at 146.76 will pave the way to retest 151.93 high. However, considering bearish divergence condition in 4H MACD, firm break of 44.92 support will be a sign of reversal, and turn bias back to the downside for 55 D EMA (now at 141.95).

In the bigger picture, overall price actions from 151.93 (2022 high) are views as a corrective pattern. Rise from 127.20 is seen as the second leg of the pattern and could still be in progress. 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.
