USD/JPY

USD/JPY Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • USD/JPY remains at risk for a further decline as the Japanese Yen benefits from the pickup in risk aversion; will continue to watch the downside targets as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) dips into oversold territory.
  • May see growing speculation for a further expansion of the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) asset-purchase-program as the region’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) is expected to show a slowdown in price growth, while the care rate of inflation is expected to contract an annualized 0.2% in July.
  • Nevertheless, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long USD/JPY since June8, with the ratio working its way back towards extremes as it climbs to 2.40 as 71% of traders are long.

EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart
  • Topside targets remain favored for EUR/USD as it extends the advance from the previous week and continues to carve a series of higher highs & lows, while the RSI pushes into overbought territory.
  • Stronger exchange rate paired with weaker energy prices may encourage the European Central Bank (ECB) to adopt a more dovish tone at the September 3 policy meeting; may see President Mario Draghi open the door to further embark on the easing cycle.
  • Close above 1.1510 (50% retracement) to 1.1520 (61.8% expansion) may keep the EUR/USD on course to test the next topside objective around 1.1760 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1810 (38.2% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar may continue to give back the rebound from May amid easing expectations for a September Fed rate hike; will favor a further decline should the RSI dip below 30 & push deeper into oversold.
