The USD/JPY is almost flat as Wednesday’s Asian session begins after posting minuscule losses of 0.09% on Tuesday, at the time of writing trades at 149.96. The drop in US Treasury bond yields and a subdued US Dollar (USD) were the two reasons that favored the Japanese Yen (JPY).

The pair has consolidated at around the 149.90-150.00 area for the last three trading sessions, capped on the upside by fears that Japanese authorities might intervene. However, if bulls push prices decisively above 150.00, that will pave the way toward the February 13 high at 150.88, followed by the 151.00 mark.

Conversely, if the USD/JPY tumbles below the Tenkan-Sen at 149.91, that would exacerbate the pair’s fall toward the Senkou Span A area at 149.15 before testing the 149.00 area. A breach of the latter will expose the Kijun-Sen at 148.39, ahead of the 148.00 mark.
