USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 145.17; (P) 145.72; (R1) 146.10; More…

USD/JPY falls notably in early US session but it’s still trying to defend 144.52 support. Intraday bias stays neutral first. Strong rebound from current level, follow by break of 147.36, will resume the rise from 127.20 to retest 151.93 high. On the downside, however, firm break of 144.52 should confirm short term topping, and turn bias back to the downside for 55 D EMA (now at 143.04) and possibly below.

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.
