USD/JPY Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Even though USD/JPY snaps back from a fresh weekly low of 119.39, the bearish sentiment surrounding the Japanese Yen may continue erode as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) talks down bets for a further expansion in the asset-purchase program.

  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI)shows retail crowd remains net-long USD/JPY since June8, but the ratio appears to be working its way back towards recent extremes as it widens to +2.51, with 71% of traders long.


GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • The pullback in GBP/USD may turn into a larger decline following the failed attempt to push back above former support around 1.5460 (23.6% retracement); with U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) highlighting subdued price growth, may need upbeat developments to put the pound-dollar on a more bullish course.

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the ongoing mixed data prints coming out of the U.S. economy, Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar may mount a larger rebound as it breaks the recent series of lower-highs, with the Fibonacci overlap around 11,951 (38.2% expansion) to 11,965 (23.6% retracement) seen as near-term support.
  • Nevertheless, with the U.S. Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) expected to increase to an annualized 1.9% from 1.8% the month prior, signs of stronger price growth may boost the appeal of the greenback as it fuels interest rate expectations.
