GBP/JPY Rebounds from Former Resistance- USD Carving Lower High?

GBP/JPY Rebounds from Former Resistance- USD Carving Lower High?

2014-07-08 18:05:00
David Song, Currency Strategist

Talking Points:

- USDOLLAR Risks Lower-Low as Monthly Opening Range Takes Shape

- NZD/USD Climbs to Fresh Monthly High as Fitch Upgrades Outlook

- Bullish GBP/JPY Outlook Favored as Former Resistance Acts as New Support

DJ-FXCM Dollar Index






USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index appears to have carved another lower-high in July as it fails to push back above former support around 10,440 (78.6% Fibonacci retracement) & retains descending channel.
  • Relative Strength Index (RSI) started to look constructive, but a failure to push back above 50 raises risk for a further decline.
  • 10,406 (1.618% Fibonacci expansion from the August decline) appears to be acting as soft support; Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes may set the tone for the rest of the month.
  • May continue to see lower highs & lows should we get more of the same from the Fed policy statement.


  • Spiked into a fresh monthly high of 0.8804 as Fitch raised New Zealand’s credit rating outlook to ‘positive’ from ‘stable.’
  • Appears to be carving higher-low as it bounces off of trendline support; would like to see a close above 0.8800 to favor a further advance in NZD/USD.
  • Next topside objective comes in around 0.8850 (61.8% Fib expansion from February)
  • China Consumer Price Index (CPI) may generate a bearish reaction in the New Zealand dollar as headline reading for inflation is expected to cool to an annualized 2.4% from 2.5% in May.


  • Bullish outlook favored for GBP/JPY as it breaks out of consolidation phase; upward trending channel in focus.
  • Looks like former resistance around 173.60-80 is offering support ahead of Bank of England (BoE) meeting..
  • Will look for opportunities to ‘buy dips’ as the bullish breakout gathers pace; break above 175.30-40 to expose 177.40/50 (100% Fib expansion).
