'Animal Spirits' Rekindled in USD/JPY?

'Animal Spirits' Rekindled in USD/JPY?

Kristian Kerr, Sr. Currency Strategist

Talking Points

  • Key cyclical turning point next week
  • The 101.35 level remains a key pivot

USD/JPY found support at the beginning of the month near the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high in the 101.35 area. The recovery from there has been steady but has made very little real upside progress as the exchange rate remains in the middle of its 3-month range. Despite this lack of progress on the upside it looks like ‘animal spirits’ have been re-kindled as sentiment towards the Yen as measured by the Daily Sentiment Index (DSI) fell to just 13% bulls earlier this week. Usually such extremes in sentiment are reserved for powerful persistent trends not minor recoveries like the one we have seen in the exchange rate over the past few weeks. Such conviction and faith that a new leg higher is underway despite modest gains suggests that USD/JPY is vulnerable to a downside break this month. The first half of next week looks significant from a cyclical perspective and a high in USD/JPY is favored around this time. A break under 101.35 after this turn window should set off an impulsive move lower in the pair.
