The USD/JPY pair is currently trading at $161.379, experiencing a slight decline of 0.11% in early trading. On the 4-hour chart, pivotal technical levels are clearly outlined. The pivot point is established at $161.1430, which could serve as a significant threshold for determining the market's direction today.

Immediate resistance levels are noted at $161.9460, $162.3800, and $162.8150. A break above these resistance points might signal further upward momentum, potentially leading to new highs.

Conversely, immediate support is identified at $160.7830, with further support levels at $160.2900 and $159.8800. These levels could offer buying opportunities if the price continues to fall. The technical indicators present a mixed outlook.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently at 53, suggesting a relatively neutral stance but leaning slightly towards the bearish side due to the recent price drop.

The 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) is positioned at $160.7320, indicating a bullish trend as long as the price remains above this level. The EMA acts as dynamic support, and a sustained price above this level would reinforce a bullish outlook.

Given the current market scenario, a prudent trading strategy would be to enter a long position if the price moves above $161.154. Setting a take-profit target at $161.945 aligns with immediate resistance levels, ensuring a favorable risk-reward ratio while capturing potential upward movement.

A stop-loss at $160.785, just below immediate support, helps mitigate risk from unexpected downward shifts.
