• The USD/JPY is set to finish the week with losses, so far down 0.59%.
  • A dismal market mood weighed on US Treasury yields and the USD/JPY.
  • USD/JPY Technical Outlook: A triple-bottom formation targets 117.48.

On Friday, the USD/JPY retreats from the double-bottom “neckline” at around 115.80 to weekly lows, negating the chart pattern late in the New York session. At 114.85, the USD/JPY reflects the risk-off market mood due to increasing tensions on the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Global equity indexes recorded losses on a busy day on Friday. The greenback would finish the week with gains, up 0.88%, sitting at 98.583. Meanwhile, US Treasury yields drop to 1.726%, a loss of eleven basis points, a headwind for the USD/JPY pair.

During the overnight session, for North American traders, the USD/JPY was seesawing around the 115.25-115-55 range, but as American traders got to their desks, it plummeted towards high 114.60s.

USD/JPY Price Forecast: Technical outlook

The USD/JPY is upward biased, as depicted by the daily moving averages (DMAs) residing below the spot price, except for the 50-DMA. USD/JPY failure to clear the neckline exerted downward pressure on the pair, but the trend stalled around previous lows that formed the double-bottom. That said, a triple-bottom chart pattern looms

The USD/JPY first resistance level would be the neckline around 115.78. Breach of the latter would expose 116.00, followed by the YTD high at 116.35, and the triple-bottoms target at 117.48.
