The USD/JPY has been in a long uptrend for nearly two years, hitting a 32-year high of 151.94 in October. However, the pair has declined moderately, with the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) currently acting as a strong floor.


Currently, the momentum indicators are confirming the bearish force. Particularly, the RSI is fluctuating below its 50-neutral mark, while the stochastic oscillator is declining after a bearish cross.

If buying forces increase, the pair could challenge the recent 137.96 resistance area.

Despite the constant downward pressure, it looks like the USDJPY cannot break down the essential 200-day SMA. Therefore, if the pair continues its unsuccessful break-down attempts, an upside correction may occur.
