Fundamental Analysis

* Yen Turbulence: The Japanese yen continue to experience depreciation against other currencies as the central bank’s reaffirmation of a dovish near-term outlook largely eclipsed any positive impact despite with BoJ interest rate hike. On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan raised interest rates by 0.1%, marking its first increase in 17 years. Additionally, it ceased its negative interest rate policy (NIRP) and yield curve control (YCC) mechanism. However, Governor Kazuo Ueda stated that the BOJ would continue purchasing Japanese government bonds at a consistent rate and emphasized the necessity of maintaining a dovish stance for a certain period to bolster the Japanese economy.

Technical Analysis

* Technical Breakout: USD/JPY was traded higher following recent breakout above previous resistance level 150.85. MACD which illustrate continued bullish momentum with recent bullish market structure breakout indicate that the pair could extend its upward momentum.

* Resistance And Targets: If the bullish momentum persists, the price is likely to head towards the resistance level 151.95. Conversely, if the price breaks back below 150.85, it may indicate a technical correction and head back towards the support level of 148.95.
