- The current bearish trend is expected to continue, with the pair likely to encounter resistance at 147.80.

In the currency markets today, the USD/JPY pair has seen a slight decline, down by 0.12% to 147.03, reflecting a tentative bearish sentiment among traders. This minor dip may be an indicator of a broader hesitation within the market as investors grapple with the pair’s recent volatility.

The pair is currently trading around a pivot point of 145.98, indicating potential shifts in market direction. The immediate resistance is seen at 147.80, with further barriers at 148.83 and a significant resistance at 150.54. On the downside, immediate support lies at 144.90, with additional supports placed at 143.81 and 142.67, which could stabilize any further downward movement.

Technical indicators suggest a bearish inclination with the RSI at 34, indicating that the pair is nearing oversold conditions, which could presage a potential bounce back if buying interest is triggered. The price sitting below the 50-Day EMA of 147.38 further solidifies the current bearish bias.

Chart patterns do not present a clear narrative, but the price below the 50 EMA and the pivot suggests a bearish undertone may persist in the short term.

The overall technical perspective for the USD/JPY pair is bearish as long as it remains below 147.72. The immediate expectation is for the pair to potentially test and react to the identified resistance levels in the near future.
