USD/JPY Daily Chart
  • Despite the bullish break, lack of momentum to hold & close above the 119.00 handle may generate range-bound prices in USD/JPY ahead of the Bank of Japan (BoJ) interest rate decision.
  • May see BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda highlight a dovish outlook for monetary policy as falling energy prices undermine the central bank’s scope to achieve the 2% inflation target.
  • As USD/JPY carves a near-term base around 115.10 (61.8% retracement) to 115.20 (161.8% expansion), will keep a close eye on the monthly high (121.83) especially as risk appetite picks up.

  • Despite the bullish reaction to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar may track sideways over the near-term as it holds the monthly high (11,522).
  • As the FOMC shows a greater willingness to normalize monetary policy in 2015, may see market participants treat the greenback as a carry currency amid the deviation in the policy outlook.
  • Looks as though the former resistance zones around 11,312 (78.6% retracement) to 11,351 (78.6% expansion) will act as suppose, with 11,539 (78.6% expansion) still standing as the topside target.
