  • USD/JPY broke above the 78.6% retracement of the 2002-2011 decline at 122.40 yesterday to record its highest level in almost 8-years
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in USD/JPY while above 121.60

  • A very minor cycle turn window is eyed today
  • A close below 121.60 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

Price & Time: Broader Trend Resuming in USD/CAD?

USD/CAD found support late last month near the 38% retracement of the July – March advance in the 1.2000 area. After several weeks of basing around this level the exchange rate triggered a triple bottom reversal on the move through 1.2200 and has been generally bid ever since. Yesterday’s break above the 50% retracement of the March – May decline is strong evidence that the broader USD uptrend is trying to re-assert itself here and a push through the 61.8% retracement at 1.2485 would further confirm this notion. Short-term cyclical analysis suggests we could see some two-way action develop over the next few days, but only unexpected aggressive weakness below 1.2170 would completely undermine the near-term positive technical structure in Funds.
