The USD/JPY remains subdued during the North American session, trading at around 150.71, up by 013% on Wednesday. Economic data releases from the United States (US) maintain the pair within familiar levels despite threats by Japanese authorities to step into the Forex markets.


USD/JPY Price Analysis: Technical outlook

As the USD/JPY daily chart depicts, the upward bias remains intact. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is bullish but flat, an indication of consolidation, at around the current year-to-date (YTD) high of 150.88. If buyers would like to extend the uptrend, they must reclaim the 151.00 figure, so they could challenge last year’s high of 151.91.

Conversely, if sellers’ step into the market and drive the exchange rate below the Tenkan-Sen at 150.26, that would expose the 150.00 figure. Further downside is seen below the Senkou Span A at 149.32, followed by 149.00, and the Kijun-Sen at 148.39.
