USDJPY probes four-day losing streak despite upbeat Japan GDP

USDJPY probes four-day losing streak despite upbeat Japan GDP

USDJPY seesaws at the lowest level in five weeks as bulls and bears jostle after the biggest weekly loss in eight months. In doing so, the Yen pair fails to justify better-than-previous Japanese GDP while challenging the four-day losing streak. That said, the oversold RSI (14) conditions and the 200-SMA support of near 146.30-25 also challenge the quote’s further downside. Following that, the mid-2023 peak of around 145.00 could act as an intermediate halt before directing the bears toward the late 2023 bottom of 140.25. 

Meanwhile, the USDJPY pair’s rebound needs validation from the 100-SMA level of 147.60, as well as the support-turned-resistance line stretched from early January, close to 148.80 at the latest. However, the 150.00 threshold and multiple tops surrounding 151.00 could check the Yen pair buyers afterward. Also acting as the upside filter is the previous yearly high of 151.90 and a one-year-old previous support line, now resistance around 152.80.

Overall, the USDJPY pair’s sustained trading beneath the key technical supports, now resistances, join the bearish MACD signals to keep sellers hopeful. However, the oversold RSI and nearness to the 200-SMA might challenge the quote’s short-term downside
