USD/JPY Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • USD/JPY may continue to give back the rebound from the June low (98.78) as it fails to preserve the series of higher highs & lows from earlier this month; failure to close above 106.60 (61.8% retracement) to 107.00 (61.8% expansion) may highlight a near-term top especially as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) appears to be turning over to preserve the bearish formation carried over from the previous year.
  • Recent comments from Japan’s Finance Minister appear to be dampening expectations for additional monetary support as Mr. Taro Aso argues in favor of the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) independence and says monetary policy should be left to Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and Co; may foreshadow the market reaction to the interest-rate decision on July 29 should the central bank stick to the sidelines.
  • Next downside hurdle come sin around 103.20 (38.2% retracement) to 103.60 (38.2% retracement) followed by 101.80 (23.6% retracement) to 102.10 (100% expansion).
DailyFX SSI

USD/JPY Searches for Support Ahead of Fed/BoJ Rate DecisionsUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • The USDOLLAR dollar bounced back from a low of 12,041 following the slew of better-than-expected data, but failure to hold/close above 12,049 (78.6% retracement) to 12,064 (61.8% retracement) may spark a larger pullback in the USDOLLAR, with the greenback at risk of facing near-term headwinds as the Federal Reserve is widely anticipated to retain its current policy at the July interest-rate decision.
  • With the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) widely anticipated to retain the current policy in July, central bank officials may keep the door open to raise the benchmark interest rate at the next quarterly meeting in September, but Chair Janet Yellen may stick to the sidelines ahead of the Presidential election in November amid the uncertainty surrounding the fiscal outlook.
  • A closing price below 12,049 (78.6% retracement) to 12,064 (61.8% retracement) may open up the downside targets, with the first area of interest coming in around 11,951 (38.2% expansion) to 11,965 (23.6% retracement).
