EUR/USD

EUR/USD Chart
  • EUR/USD carving narrowing range as European Central Bank (ECB) keeps benchmark interest rate at 0.05% while providing limited details surrounding the asset-back securities (ABS) and covered-bond purchase program.
  • Could be seen as an attempt from the ECB to buy time as President Mario Draghi wants to see the take up of the second targeted long-term refinancing operation (T-LTRO).
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to reflect net-long positioning in EUR/USD as the ratio stands at +1.22, but may continue to serve as a contrarian indicator as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bullish momentum.

USD/JPY

USD/JPY Chart
  • USD/JPY risks a more meaningful correction as the RSI breaks down from the bullish trend; long-term outlook remains bullish amid the deviation in the policy outlook.
  • Bank of Japan (BoJ) policy meeting on October 7 may serve as a fundamental catalyst to trigger a larger pullback should Governor Haruhiko Kuroda refrain from further expanding the asset-purchase program.
  • Will continue to watch the downside targets, with former resistance coming in around 105.20 (50.0% expansion) to 105.35 (50.0% retracement).
