In our prior “Short-term FX Technical Strategy” report dated on 15 June 2022, USD/JPY has staged the expected decline below 135.70 and almost hit the upper limit of 131.25/130.95 support zone (printed an intraday low of 131.49 on 16 Jun).

The technical structure remains skew towards further potential JPY strength in the short-term. Watch the tightened key short-term pivotal resistance at 133.70 for another potential leg of down move towards 131.25/130.95 and a break below 130.95 may open up scope for further drop towards 129.90/70.

On the other hand, a clearance with an hourly close above 133.70 invalidates the bearish tone for a squeeze up towards the 135.70 resistance in the first step.
