USD/JPY

USD/JPY Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • USD/JPY appears to be facing a near-term pullback following the gap-open, but the long-term outlook remains constructive as it breaks out of the range carried over from September, while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) flirts with overbought territory for the first time since June.
  • Will keep a close eye on the key data prints coming out of Japan as expectations for a widening Current Account surplus may encourage the Bank of Japan (BoJ) to carry its wait-and-see approach into 2016.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long USD/JPY since June 8, but the ratio remains off of recent extremes as it narrows to 1.09, with 52% of traders long.

AUD/USD

AUD/USD Daily Chart
  • AUD/USD stands at risk of facing a further decline following the failed attempt to push back above former support around 0.7180 (61.8% retracement), while the RSI carves out a bearish pattern.

  • Will keep a close eye on the Fibonacci overlap around 0.6950 (161.8% expansion) to 0.6960 (61.8% expansion) along with the September low (0.6906) as there appears to be a resumption of the long-term downward trend.
