Talking Points:

  • The yen crosses produced tantalizing breakouts alongside a sustained equity rally
  • Yet, risk positive moves face serious momentum curbs in both the near and medium-term
  • With a market contrained by Fed speculation, it is best to turn down the time frames on charts

EURJPY led most of the yen crosses towards notable technical breakouts - offering an FX interpretation of 'risk appetite'. Alongside the S&P 500's rally, this looks like a good pairing of technical and fundamental evidence of trade development. However, there is a serious hang up to such trades: the Fed rate decision next week. Sustaining a strong risk appetite or risk aversion move with this event risk on the horizon will be difficult to muster. Yet, the potential is there is the short-term. To assess the opportunity of a short-term EURJPY reversal, GBPUSD break above 1.5750 or AUDJPY break in either direction; moving to the lower time frame charts is prudent. We discuss the short and medium-term outlook along with its trade view in today's video.
