  • Despite the downturn in risk sentiment, EUR/JPY continues to threaten former support around 137.70-90.
  • Need a turn in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) for confirmation/conviction of a lower-high as it threatens the bearish momentum from earlier this year.
  • European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of Japan (BoJ) interest rate decisions may set the tone for the August trade as the Governing Council looks to implement more non-standard measures.


  • Sits at support from the beginning of the year around 1.0900-20, while the RSI struggles to push into overbought territory.
  • A bearish break in the oscillator should highlight a near-term topping process in the USD/CAD.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index shows retail crowd has turned net-short USD/CAD this week as the ratio stands at -1.90.

  • Need to see the RSI break down from the bullish trend for a near-term pullback; looks as though a more bullish outlook will take shape as the Fed remains on course to halt its quantitative easing (QE) program in October; when will markets start to price it in?
  • Beyond Non-Farm Payrolls (+231K), we will keep a close eye on Average Weekly Earnings (2.2%) as Chair Janet Yellen continues to highlight the slack in the labor market.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,555 (50.0% retracement) to 10,561 (100% retracement)
