After breaching stir resistance at the May 23 high of 157.19, the USD/JPY resumed its uptrend, yet buyers seem cautious as the pair advances moderately toward the 158.00 mark. Momentum is still on the buyer’s side, with price action standing above the Ichimoku Cloud (Kumo), the Tenkan-Sen crossing above the Kijun-Sen, and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) standing at bullish territory.
