USD/JPY Price Analysis: Technical outlook

After breaching stir resistance at the May 23 high of 157.19, the USD/JPY resumed its uptrend, yet buyers seem cautious as the pair advances moderately toward the 158.00 mark. Momentum is still on the buyer’s side, with price action standing above the Ichimoku Cloud (Kumo), the Tenkan-Sen crossing above the Kijun-Sen, and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) standing at bullish territory.

On further strength, the USD/JPY could challenge 158.00. Once surpassed, the next stop would be the April 26 high of 158.44, ahead of 159.00. Further gains lie overhead, like the year-to-date (YTD) high of 160.32.

Conversely, if sellers moved in and pushed prices below the 157.00 figure, that could pave the way for further losses. In that event, support is seen at the Kijun-Sen at 156.48, followed by the Senkou Span A at 156.25, ahead of the Tenkan-Sen at 156.05.
