USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Bulls struggling to defend 200-hour SMA support

   •  The pair's intraday uptick faced rejection near 50-hour SMA, with bears now eyeing a follow-through weakness below 200-hour SMA amid notable USD supply.

   •  A decisive breakthrough 100-hour SMA and a subsequent weakness below the 113.30-25 horizontal support was seen as a key trigger for intraday bearish traders.

   •  Technical indicators on 4-hourly/daily charts have been gaining negative momentum but are already pointing to slightly oversold conditions on the 1-hourly chart.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a minor bounce towards the 113.30-25 support turned resistance before initiating any fresh near-term bearish positions.
