USD/JPY

USD/JPY Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Even though Koichi Hamada, an adviser to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe,argues that ‘selling of the yen is coming closer to its limit,’ may continue to see range-bound prices in USD/JPY as it retains the monthly-opening range.
  • Beyond the bearish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI), the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) April 30 meeting may further undermine the bullish outlook for USD/JPY should Governor Haruhiko Kuroda continue to endorse a neutral tone for monetary policy.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail FX crowd remains net-long USD/JPY, but seeing narrowing participation as open interest slips 0.2% from the previous day, with the ratio climbing to +2.50 amid a 13.2% decline in short positions.

AUD/USD

NZD/USD Daily Chart
  • Ongoing closes above 0.7570 (50% expansion) to 0.7590 (100% expansion) may encourage a larger rebound in AUD/USD especially as the bullish RSI momentum gathers pace.
  • However, as China – Australia’s largest trading partner – is expected to grow at a slower pace in 2015, a dismal 1Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report may heighten speculation for another rate cut from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) as Governor Glenn Stevens retains a dovish outlook for monetary policy.
  • Need a break/close above former-support zone around 0.7720 (161.8% expansion) to 0.7740 (78.6% expansion) to favor a larger rebound in the aussie-dollar.

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar risks a larger decline as the bearish RSI momentum takes shape; long-term outlook remains bullish as the upward trending channel from July 2014.
  • In light of the ongoing weakness in private-sector consumption, will continue to watch the slew of central bank rhetoric as 2015 voting-members Jeffrey Lacker, Dennis Lockhart and Stanley Fischer are scheduled to speak this week.
  • Despite the risk for a double-top formation, will continue to watch the string over lower-highs in the USDOLLAR, with interim support coming in around 11,997 (100% expansion) to 12,017 (50% expansion).Join DailyFX on Demand for Real-Time SSI Updates!
