The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) continues to pare the decline following the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) interest rate decision amid the slew of positive data coming out of the world’s largest economy, and the greenback may continue to track higher over the remainder of the week as the Relative Strength Index breaks out of the bearish trend.

Despite the delay in the Fed’s exit strategy, the central bank remains on track to taper the asset-purchase program as the majority sees the first rate hike in 2015, and the more hawkish composition of the 2014 FOMC may spur a material shift in the policy outlook as the economic recovery is expected to gather pace next year.

Nevertheless, the bearish momentum in the USDOLLAR appears to be coming an end as the Relative Strength Index breaks out of the downward trend, and we may see a more pronounced reversal in the greenback as the central bank looks to switch gears.

USDJPY Daily

  • Maintains Upward Trending Channel; RSI Retains Bullish Momentum
  • Interim Resistance: 100.60-70 (61.8 expansion)
  • Interim Support: 97.50 (38.2 retracement) to 97.70 (38.2 expansion)

All four components weakened against the greenback, led by a 1.48 percent decline in the Japanese Yen, and the USDJPY stills looks constructive as it preserves the bullish setup carried over from the previous month.

Indeed, the muted market reaction to the less-dovish comments from Bank of Japan (BoJ) board member Takahide Kiuchi and Governor Haruhiko Kuroda suggests that the deviation in the policy outlook will continue to limit the downside for the USDJPY, and the bullish trend in the relative strength index certainly foreshadows a further advance in the exchange rate as the central bank is widely expected to further embark on its easing cycle.

In turn, we will target the topside objectives in the USDJPY going into the end of the week, but we will need to keep a close eye on the 61.8 percent Fibonacci expansion around 100.60-70 following the failed run earlier this month.
