GBP/USD:

  • Rebounds from 1.6600 as Bank of England (BoE) Minutes shows 7-2 vote count, with Martin Weale & Ian McCafferty dissenting against the majority.
  • Despite the greater rift in the BoE, GBP/USD struggles to retrace the decline from the weaker-than-expected U.K. Consumer Price report.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) suggests that the GBP/USD remains vulnerable to further losses as retail crowd is mostly net-long the dollar, with the ratio standing at +1.52.

USD/JPY:

  • Rallies to fresh monthly high of 103.39 after closing above the key 102.80-90 zone, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pushing above 70; first overbought reading since December 2013.
  • May retrace the entire decline from the April high (104.11) on a break & close above 103.30-50.
  • As the upward trending channel taking shape, will look for a higher-low on a near-term correction.

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index climbs to a fresh monthly high of 10,616 after closing above the key 10,590 pivot, with the RSI pushing back into overbought territory.
  • May see former support (10,615) act as new resistance, especially if the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes fail to prop up interest rate expectations.
  • Need a bearish break in the RSI to look for a more meaningful USDOLLAR correction.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,602 (38.2% retracement) to 10,615 (78.6% expansion)
  • Interim Support: 10,440 (78.6% retracement) to 10,450 Pivot
