  • The USD/JPY hourly chart shows a downside break of the rising trendline and a bearish divergence of the relative strength index (RSI).
  • The hourly MACD is showing that the bearish momentum is gathering pace.
  • Hence, the pair could soon test the ascending (bullish) 50-hour exponential moving average (EMA), currently located at 113.74. A strong bounce from that level could help recharge engines for a convincing break above 114.00.
