  • USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: October 18, 2016

    The USD decreased its value against the JPY during Monday’s trading session after the release of US economic data which turned out to be lower than expected, on top of investor reaction to comments from Fed Chairwoman Yellen last Friday. The Empire State manufacturing index was released last Monday, with the index dropping by -6.80 in October, faring worse than the previous data of -2.0 and falling below the expected +1.1 estimate.

    Meanwhile, the data for Industrial Production also fell below its expected reading of 0.3% since the data came out at 0.1%, but was better than the September release of -0.5%. The Capacity Utilization Rate data came out at 75.4%, going a bit higher than the previous data release of 75.3% but still lower than the expected reading of 75.6%.The Federal Reserve’s Vice Chairman recently warned that low interest rates might increase the vulnerability of the economy due to impending recessions.

    For the last trading session, the USD/JPY pair traded at 103.779 points, going down by -0.37% or 0.387 points. Market players initially reacted to Yellen’s statement the Fed might wait for inflation rates to go beyond its expected range before inducing an increase in interest rates.

  • USD/JPY Technical Analysis: October 19, 2016

    The USD/JPY pair is currently trading at 103.87 points, increasing by 0.01% during the last trading session after a high of 103.98 and a daily low of 103.80 points. The Asian trading session exhibited an ambiguous trading activity while the market waits for the release of the Chinese GDP data for the third quarter of the year. The USD is currently on the uncertain side while the USD/JPY was able to retain its stance in the positive territory in spite of rallying from the 100 handle in September.

    However, this ambiguity of the pair can be remedied by the oil bulls, since this can be used as a means to measure risk appetite and market demand. So far, oil has been moving on an impressive note recently, with the AUD/JPY pair having a positive bid on its 4-hour chart from the handle of 76-80.

    Although the currency pair is trading on the positive side, analysts are speculating that going above the 104.63 means that this could possibly target the monthly low in May at 105.55 points. Since the pair is currently trading at 103.88 points, then the next resistance point is at the 103.91 range of the 20 EMA, 103.98 range of the 100 SMA and the daily high. Meanwhile, support levels is expected to be at the 103.87 range and could also possibly drop to the 200 SMA of 103.80.

  • USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: October 20, 2016

    The USD decreased in value in relation to the JPY during Wednesday’s trading session after the drop in US Treasury yields data, as well as speculations from market players that the Federal Reserve might not raise its interest rates before 2016 ends. The USD/JPY pair finished the last trading session at 103.440 points, dropping by -0.40% or 0.417 points.

    The market is not expecting any major economic data release from Japan, however, the US housing data decreased by 9% in September, while housing permits increased by 6.3%. The Federal Reserve has also released its Beige Book during the last trading session, which outlines the economic conditions in the US. According to the book, the US economic environment increased by a modest percentage in most regions in the US.

    Investors are now awaiting the results of the next US Presidential Debate, while reports from the European Central Bank with regards to their committee decisions on the eurozone’s monetary policy. This can have a significant impact on the market since this will become an indicator on whether traders should expect a risk-on trading session or a risk-off session.

  • USD/JPY Technical Analysis: October 21, 2016

    The USD/JPY pair is currently trading at 104.13 points after increasing by 0.18% during the last session and has recorded a session high of 104.18 and a session low of 103.91 points. The currency pair is already losing its Asian session bid after the USD finally regained some of its lost value. The Bank of Japan’s Sakura Regional Economic Report has expressed possibilities of the yen increasing its pressure and has decreased the economic assessment for the Tokai region.

    Analysts are noting how the USD/JPY pair has remained stable all throughout the yield curve control set by the Bank of Japan, with all major Japanese markets such as JPY yields, Nikkei stock index and the USD/JPY experiencing relatively low volatility during the past trading sessions. The lower range for the USD/JPY pair might also be supported by the simultaneous selling off by Japan-based investors.

    Since the current trading value for the USD/JPY is at 104.13 points, resistance levels are expected to be at 104.18 points and 104.20 points. Meanwhile, support levels are expected to come in at the 104.14 range and 104.12 and could possibly drop further to 103.89.

  • USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: October 24, 2016

    The USD/JPY pair reached a daily session high of 104.20 points before closing down the trading session at the 103.82 trading range, with daily lows for the pair recorded at 103.52 points. The USD/JPY received rejection at the 104.00 region during the Tokyo session and is currently at the 103.86 region.

    The Japanese economic data for this year took on a generally disappointing note, with export data for the nation plummeting by 6.9%. Import data also dropped by 16.3% at the same period, with trade surpluses worth 498.3 billion yen. Chinese exports also decreased by up to 10.6%, causing the Bank of Japan to face renewed pressure with regards to lowering the value of the yen. However, analysts are saying that a Fed-induced drop in the yen might not resolve the issue of dropping Chinese exports since the yuan could decrease further as compared to the yen once the Fed decides to implement its long-awaited rate hike.

    The economic calendar for today is primarily dominated by the Fed, with the possibility of an interest rate hike clocking in only at 70%. This possibility is not expected to increase any time soon due to the impending US national elections which overshadows hawkish sentiment from various policymakers. On the other hand, the yen might become more stable due to dovish statements and bearings.

  • USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: October 25, 2016

    The USD increased in relation to the JPY amid the impending interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve in December, along with a heightened demand for assets with higher yields. For the last trading session, the USD/JPY pair closed down at 104.175 points after increasing by up to 0.35% or 0.365 points.

    The MarketWatch program of the CME Group reported that market traders are expecting a 70% probability that the Fed will be pushing through with its interest rate hike in December. Positive economic data from the previous session caused a reaction from dollar traders with bullish stances while simultaneously reacting to hawkish comments from the FOMC. St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard also commented on Monday that the market would only need a one-time interest rate hike to sustain the economy.

    The USD/JPY pair further surged during Monday’s session after a significant increase in the US equity markets caused an increase in demand for high-yield assets. However, this has caused the Japanese yen to decrease in value. The market is not expecting any major economic data from Japan in today’s trading session, and the main determinant of the direction of the currency pair will be the US equity market movement. The USD/JPY is expected to receive more stable support from an increased demand for stocks.

  • USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: October 27, 2016

    The USD decreased its value in relation to the JPY during Wednesday’s session after yen traders resorted to safety buying as a reaction to the drop in US equity markets. The trading session closed down with the USD reverting back to its previous value against the JPY. The USD/JPY is currently at 104.468, increasing by up to +0.25% or 0.260 points.

    Analysts are stating that the USD dropped further due to concerns regarding the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy and uncertainties regarding the impending US presidential elections. However, the rallying of the USD is an indicator that there is an increased possibility for a Fed rate hike in December, and risks are possibly leaning on the downside territory. This will then add more focus to the release of the Durable Goods report on Thursday and Advance GDP data which will be released this coming Friday.

    Thursday’s trading session is expected to have more double-sided trades since traders are monitoring the general direction of the US Treasury yields, as well as high-risk assets demand. Traders should also consider monitoring the stock market, since the JPY is expected to increase if support levels for the US equity markets starts decreasing.
