USD/JPY:

  • Trades back within the downward trending channel from June after failing to break above near-term resistance (101.80-102.00).
  • Will keep a close eye on market sentiment amid geopolitical risks, U.S. earning season & month-end flows.
  • Bank of Japan (BoJ) widely expected to retain its current policy at the August 8 meeting; may heighten appeal of the JPY as market participants push back bets for a further expansion of the asset-purchase program.

USD/CAD:

  • May resume the advance carried over from 2013 as price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) break out of near-term downward trend.
  • Bank of Canada (BoC) Governor Stephen Poloz looks poised to retain the current policy throughout 2014 as the central bank head retains a dovish outlook for inflation.
  • Need break & close above former support (1.0820-30) to favor topside objectives.

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Lack of momentum to hold above the 10,470 to highlight topping process; lower-high in place for Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index?
  • Still need a bearish break in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) for conviction/confirmation for further USD weakness.
  • Given mixed batch of U.S. data, seems like we will get more of the same from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) as Chair Janet Yellen retains a dovish tone for monetary policy.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,508 (61.8% retracement) to 10,524 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 10,354 (Oct. low) to 10,375 (50.0& retracement)
