The USDJPY pair has rebounded to the 0.618 retracement and key resistance at around 149.20. If it is rejected and fails to close above, the pair could slide back to 148.15 possibly lower.

A daily close above 149.20 level indicates short-term potential to reach the February peak at around 150.84, with the 2022 peak at 151.95 also in sight.

The RSI is showing negative sentiment, suggesting that USDJPY is likely to be rejected at the 149.20 resistance. However, an RSI close above the 60 threshold would change this outlook

GBPJPY is testing the 0.618 retracement at 190.04.
RSI is showing positive sentiment and has broken above its falling trendline indicating GBPJPY is likely to break above the 0.618 retracement and move higher.

If RSI is closing back above 60 threshold GBPJPY is likely to break above the February peak at 191.33 and move towards the 1.382 projection at 192.61.

A close below 187.85 will reverse the bullish scenario and push GBPJPY lower to 186.17
