The USD/JPY is currently trading at $156.75, down 0.02% for the day. The 4-hour chart indicates a pivot point at $156.87. Key resistance levels are $157.97, $158.98, and $159.97, while immediate support levels are $155.80, $154.61, and $153.43.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is at 65, suggesting that the pair is approaching overbought territory. This could indicate a potential pullback in the short term. The 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) is at $155.94, providing a key support level that, if breached, could signal further downside.

Technically, the USD/JPY shows signs of potential bearish movement as it trades just below the pivot point. A recommended strategy is to sell below $156.87, targeting a take-profit level of $155.80 and setting a stop loss at $157.75. This approach leverages the potential for a correction from the current overbought conditions while managing risk.

Despite the minor decline today, the overall sentiment appears cautiously bearish given the RSI and the proximity to the pivot point. Should the USD/JPY break below immediate support at $155.80, further declines towards $154.61 and $153.43 are plausible. Conversely, a break above $156.87 could test the resistance levels at $157.97 and $158.98.
