As of January 11, the USD/JPY pair has seen a slight decline of 0.26%, settling at 145.33. This movement positions the pair just above its pivot point of 141.69. Looking ahead, the pair faces immediate resistance at 143.77, with more significant barriers at 146.88 and 148.96. Conversely, support levels are observed at 138.58, 136.50, and 134.24, providing potential fallback points in the event of a downward trend.

The technical indicators for USD/JPY provide insights into the current market sentiment. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands at 63, indicating a generally bullish sentiment but not entering overbought territory. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) shows a value of 0.069 against a signal line of 0.46800, suggesting the possibility of upward momentum.

Furthermore, the pair’s proximity to the 50-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) of 145.15 reinforces this bullish trend, though caution is warranted.

A symmetrical triangle pattern is currently in play for USD/JPY. This pattern, typically indicative of a period of consolidation before a breakout, suggests potential bullish momentum if the pair manages to break above the upper trendline of the triangle.

In summary, the USD/JPY pair is exhibiting a cautiously bullish trend. Given the current technical setup and market conditions, the short-term forecast anticipates the pair testing resistance levels, particularly the immediate one at 143.77.

Traders might consider a Buy Limit entry at 145, with a Take Profit target set at 145.959 and a Stop Loss at 144.232 to manage risks effectively. This strategy aligns with the pair’s current positioning and the likelihood of continued bullish momentum in the near term.
