EUR/USD

JPY Vulnerable to Slowing Japan CPI- ECB & RBA Rhetoric in Focus
  • EUR/USD remains at risk for a further decline as Relative Strength Index (RSI) largely retains bearish momentum; move back into oversold territory may highlight a further decline .
  • With European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi scheduled to speak next week, may see expectations for a larger asset-back securities (ABS) purchase program amid the dismal take-up of the targeted long-term refinancing operations (T-LTRO).
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) reinforces bearish outlook for EUR/USD as the ratio currently stands at +1.47.

USD/JPY

JPY Vulnerable to Slowing Japan CPI- ECB & RBA Rhetoric in Focus
  • Topside targets remain favored for USD/JPY as RSI retains bullish momentum & pushes deeper into overbought territory.
  • Japan’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) may heighten bets of seeing the Bank of Japan (BoJ) further expand its asset-purchase program at the October 7 policy meeting.
  • Next topside target comes in around 109.65 (100% expansion) to the 110.00 pivot.

  • Next topside objective comes in around 10,989 (50.0% expansion) to 11,009 (July 2013 high).
