FxWirePro: USD/JPY neutral in the near-term, scope for downward resumption

  • USD/JPY declined on Monday as the greenback weakened and investors unwound previous bets the Federal Reserve would hike U.S. interest rates at an aggressive pace this year.
     
  • The greenback has been on the retreat since the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates on Wednesday but stopped short of predicting a sharper acceleration in monetary tightening over the next two years.
     
  • The ongoing downside is set to continue for this pair as the resistance level at 114.23 is likely to act as strong barrier to the bulls and bring a further decline towards lower levels.
     
  • To the upside, the immediate resistance can be seen at 113.43, a break above this level would take the pair towards next resistance level at 114.23.
     
  • To the downside immediate support can be seen at 112.62, a break below this level will open the gates towards next level at 112.00.
