The currency pair, within the context of a fluctuating forex market, is currently grappling with key technical levels that will determine its short-term trajectory. It navigates around a pivotal point at 144.72, with immediate resistance placed at 145.75. Subsequent resistance levels are seen at 147.75 and 148.84, posing potential hurdles to upward movements.

In conclusion, the technical analysis of the USD/JPY pair points to a bearish trend below the 147.350 mark in the short term.
