  • USD/JPY spikes lower as Bank of Japan (BoJ) argues additional monetary support could be counterproductive especially as Governor Haruhiko Kuroda remains confident in achieving the 2% inflation target.
  • May see a further consolidation in USD/JPY ahead of the BoJ rate decision on February 18 as the advance 4Q GDP report is expected to show the Japanese economy climbing out of the technical recession.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long USD/JPY since December 8, with the ratio currently holding at +1.57.

GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • GBP/USD showing a more meaningful attempt to break out of the downward trending channel dating back to July as the Bank of England (BoE) anticipates stronger wage growth and continues to prepare U.K. households and businesses for higher borrowing-costs.
  • However, as the BoE cuts its 2015 inflation forecast, a marked slowdown in the U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may generate short-term headwinds for the sterling as the BoE remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • Looks poised for a larger recover as the bullish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) takes shape, with the next region of interest coming in around 1.5420 (78.6% expansion) to 1.5440 (78.6% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar falls back from a fresh monthly high of 11,886 following the dismal U.S. Retail Sales report; will keep a close eye on U. of Michigan Confidence on tap tomorrow as the survey is expected to hold steady at 98.1 in February.
  • May see Fed rate expectations diminish as weak energy prices fail to drive private-sector consumption; may share the same fate as its U.K. counterpart as wage growth continues to lag.
  • Bearish outside day candle may highlight a larger decline ahead, but will keep a close eye on the 11,721 (38.2% expansion) to 11,901 (78.6% expansion) range.
