  • USD/JPY is modestly up, reflecting a cautious market amidst higher US Treasury yields and potential for Japanese intervention.
  • Technical indicators suggest resistance at 152.00, with further targets at 153.00 and 155.00 should the major break higher.
  • A move below the Tenkan-Sen could see USD/JPY testing support levels down to 148.93, amid ongoing market vigilance.

The USD/JPY remains subdued amid speculation of possible intervention by Japanese authorities. Although US Treasury yields pushed higher during Monday’s session, with the 10-year benchmark note rate rising 11 basis points, the pair stood shy of the day’s high of 151.77. At the time of writing, the major trades at 151.63, up 0.15%.

USD/JPY Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The USD/JPY daily chart depicts the pair consolidating around the 151.00/152.00 region, with intervention threats strengthening the 152.00 mark as a first resistance level. A breach of the latter will expose the 153.00 psychological figure, ahead of 155.00.

On the other hand, if the USD/JPY pulls back below the Tenkan-Sen at 151.12, that would send the pair sliding to the Senkou Span A at 150.17, followed by the Kijun-Sen at 149.22. Further downside is seen at the Senkou Span B at 148.93.
