  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment
  • Fed's Kashkari: - I am opposed to rate hikes at least through 2023 - The labor market is still in a deep hole; it will take some time to get people reattached to the work force
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The benefits of reducing MBS purchases first would be modest - It may take longer than September to judge progress on labor supply
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Fed funds rate should remain unchanged through 2023 - When it is time to taper, the best case scenario is to stick to the same plan as before

USD/JPY Consolidates After Yesterday’s Bearish Breakout

(Created using TradingView Charts)

The USD/JPY has remained quiet this morning after yesterday’s bearish breakout. So far, the pair continues to range into the U.S. open and is currently consolidating between the R3 and S3 Camarilla pivot points displayed above. It should be mentioned that today’s pivot range measures 56 pips, with the R3 pivot residing at 123.12 and the S3 pivot located at 122.56. With a light economic calendar today, it opens the possibility that the pair may remain range bound going into this weeks close. Traders looking to take advantage of these conditions may wait for prices to test either support or resistance and implement the range-based strategy of their choosing.

In the event of a breakout, a move in prices beyond either the R4 or S4 would signal an end to the current range bound market conditions. A bullish breakout above the R4 pivot point at 123.40 would be significant as it could lead to the resumption of the USD/JPY’s current daily uptrend. Using today’s 56 pip trading range, a 1-x extension above resistance places initial breakout targets near 123.96. Alternatively, if the USD/JPY breaks lower for the second day in a row, traders should monitor the S4 pivot point at 122.28. In this scenario, traders may select to target new weekly lows going into today’s close. Again using a 1-x extension of today’s range, places bearish breakout targets at a price of 121.72.
