Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: September 16, 2016

The USD/JPY pair dropped 14 points to trade at 102.29 points, well within its recent trading range of between 101.90 and 102.50. The strength of the USD was offset by an impending meeting of the Bank of Japan next week, as well as a renewed demand for the safe haven currency. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Japanese subzero-rates policy had a significant impact in putting downward pressure on interest rates.

There are also signs that the BoJ will be attempting to sharpen its yield curve by increasing long-term rates and suppressing short-term rates. The Bank of Japan has already purchased more short-term government bonds, shifted its bonds and is currently buying lesser bonds. The percentage of long-term bonds went up by half of a percentage since July. However, in spite of the steepening of the Japanese yield curve, the difference between 10-year bonds and 2-year bonds is still half of its value before the effect of negative rates.

Japanese government bonds had their worst selloff in 20 years, especially since the BoJ will be planning to implement adjustments on the maturity range, causing yields to rise on longer-duration bonds.

Andrea ForexMart -> Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: September 20, 2016 (9/20/2016 4:07:38 AM)

The USD/JPY traded at 101.866, dropping by 0.390 points or -0.38% as traders and investors are preparing for the announcements of the Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan regarding their respective monetary policies on Wednesday.

Although the Federal Reserve’s announcement on its interest rate policies will be announced in the same period as that of BoJ’s announcement, analysts are speculating that the BoJ’s announcement on its monetary policies will have a greater impact on the market’s volatility and movement than that of the Fed’s announcement. However, this announcement might give cues regarding an imminent interest rate hike in December, which can strengthen the USD and cause the JPY to lose some of its value.

The Bank of Japan is also expected to discuss an extensive review of its monetary policy framework, which includes a combination of its asset-buying program with its negative interest rates.

Speculators are having difficulties with regards to predicting the BoJ’s movement. Some speculators are saying that the Japanese central bank will be changing its mechanism in exchange of a policy which will be combining an increased stimulus while giving protection to banks which are struggling with dealing with the negative effects of interest rates on their respective deposits.

Andrea ForexMart -> Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: September 21, 2016 (9/21/2016 3:41:32 AM)

The USD/JPY pair went down by 0.169 0r -0.17% to trade at 101.744 points. The US dollar is currently in a tight trading range against the JPY during the last trading session as various market players are waiting for the Bank of Japan’s announcement regarding its monetary policies, as well as the Federal Reserve’s announcement on Tuesday.

The USD/JPY slightly weakened after the release of the US housing data, which turned out to be a disappointment for traders and investors. The housing data came out at a yearly rate of 1.14 million units last August, going way below the expected range of 1.19 million units. Construction permits also dropped by 0.4% to go down at 1.14 million units in August.

Speculators are saying that the Bank of Japan would have to implement programs with significant monetary policy easing and interest rate cuts in order to further weaken the JPY in the long-term frame. The Federal Reserve must also release a hawkish statement which can indicate a possible rate hike in December. The USD/JPY is also expected to appreciate especially if the BoJ releases a more aggressive monetary strategy combined with an expected 12% interest rate raise by the Fed prior to the central bank’s announcement. However, if the Fed remains cautious on its policies and refuses to raise its rates, then the USD might weaken and the BoJ would be unable to decrease the value of the Japanese currency.

Andrea ForexMart -> USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis - September 21, 2016 (9/21/2016 4:02:59 AM)

Yesterday, Governor Poloz of the Bank of Canada discussed about the need of the monetary stimulus for the country in order to bolster its economy, however the US and Canadian dollar seems impassive as it performed a steady-going movement.

Due to a sharp decline of the high, the price settled down at 1.3176 and further changes down to 1.3100 is still anticipated. Moreover, the FOMC announcement will determine if the pair could make an increase within the level of 1.2850.

The USD and CAD appeared to be bearish within a short and medium term. There is also a prediction regarding the oil prices consolidation subsequent to the recession happened few months ago. Part of the forecast is the continuous ranging of the pair between 400-500 daily pip range.

Andrea ForexMart -> EUR/USD Technical Analysis: September 22, 2016 (9/22/2016 2:13:57 AM)

The much-awaited monetary policy announcements from the Bank of Japan and the Federal Reserve turned out to be a big disappointment for investors and traders, particularly to dollar bulls, since both central banks have decided to maintain their present policies and make no changes. The US Federal Reserve did not make any changes in its interest rates. However, there is a possibility that a rate hike could happen within the year due to three dissenters at this point compared to only one dissenter during the last policy announcement. Fed chair Janet Yellen has also stated that the possibility of a rate hike has already strengthened.

The Bank of Japan has created measures to take control of its yield curve, such as maintaining its rates at -0.1% in an attempt to protect banks. However, the BoJ has also introduced a 10-year interest rate target. Policy makers are now anticipating one last rate hike for 2016 and possibly two more hikes for 2017. The median growth protection for 2016 was cut back from 2% to 1.8%, indicating a decrease in its long-term forecast. Inflation rates are expected to go down to 1.3% during the last quarter from the previous forecast of 1.4%.

The EUR/USD pair went up to 1.1196 points before going down slightly prior to the announcement of the central banks, with the USD losing some of its present value. The EUR/USD also maintained its neutral-bearish stance in the 4-hour chart after certain technical indicators went over the neutral side. Prices were also unable to go over the 100 and 200 SMAs. However, the currency pair is expected to strengthen this Thursday due to the upward movement of the USD, with trading points expected to go up to 1.1200.

Andrea ForexMart -> EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: September 23 2016 (9/23/2016 2:54:45 AM)

The EUR/USD persist an upward grind movement since the trading day yesterday. The said activity started subsequent to the FOMC's announcement.

Bearish investors tried to pass through the support level of 1.1145 but failed to accomplish their plan. When the announcement were already made, bullish investors are able to manage the price actions that moved in an ascending manner. They are capable to broke the yesterday's forecast with a level of 1.1250.

The European market look forward for the announcement of the ECB president, Mr. Mario Draghi regarding the Euro economy. This is why the economy had experienced a price delay in selling. Consequent to the major announcements made by the BoJ, Fed and other central banks, Draghi did not disclose any special information because he does not want to aggravate them.

After the grind and FOMC statement, the USD moderately increased and started to acquire strength together with the its related pairs. This development negatively affected the Euro and demonstrated a decreasing grind that last in one night.

The grind of EUR gained a support towards 1.1200. In case that the dollar stick on its actions, the EURUSD has the tendency to draw back a main support in the 1.1200 level.

Andrea ForexMart -> Technical Analysis for GBP/USD: September 23, 2016 (9/23/2016 4:06:01 AM)

The cable pair GBP/USD bounced back to trade at 1.3013 after dropping to its 1-month low at 1.2946 during Wednesday’s trading session. The cable pair then went down slightly at 1.2954 before finally rallying at 1.3046 after the Federal Reserve chose to maintain its previous interest rates.

The GBP/USD’s rally from July’s new low in 31 years at 1.2798 from its previous value of 1.3481 indicates that the downward trend is a mere temporary low. Meanwhile, the consecutive value swings suggest a possible triangle unfolding with a-leg terminus at 1.3481, a b-leg trough at 1.2865, and September’s highest increase at 1.3445 points pinpoints the c-leg terminus while the d-leg would go over 1.2865 points, inducing a final rebound at the e-leg before the downward trend reappears.

The rebound of the cable pair during the last trading session from its monthly low at 1.2946 indicates that the dropping trend will only be temporary since this particular drop was accompanied by bullish convergences on the 1-hour indicators and will likely gain further to trade at 1.3137 points next week, going over 1.3092 points.

Andrea ForexMart -> Fundamental Analysis USD/JPY: September 26, 2016 (9/25/2016 11:01:43 PM)

Investors in the Japanese yen were disappointed with the Bank of Japan’s plans to reexamine its monetary policies. The reaction to the central bank’s announcement caused an initial double-sided volatility. Investors have since decided that this particular decision will have no bearing on the economy and on the Japanese currency.

The BoJ’s announcement caused the JPY to increase significantly on September 21, but the USD had already started bouncing back by September 23. The USD/JPY closed Friday’s trading session at 100.971 points, going up by 0.211 points or +0.21%. The pair however still closed the week lower by 1.26%.

The USD/JPY pair was also further weakened by the Fed’s interest rate and monetary policy statement, which turned out to be less hawkish than expected. The Federal Reserve did not increase its interest rates this month, but there is still a possibility of an interest rate hike in December.

The USD experienced a downward pressure.due to the Fed’s lowered expectations and the decreased possibility of future rate hikes, which can lead to a lowered appreciation of the USD since the central bank’s decision indicates a slow-moving US economy.

Andrea ForexMart -> EUR/USD Technical Analysis: September 26, 2016 (9/26/2016 1:49:07 AM)

The EUR/USD went up higher during Friday’s trading session as the USD further weakened after the Fed’s decision to maintain its current interest rates. The Markit PMI also went out lower than expected after it took the bulk of the earlier increases in the USD. Resistance levels are currently on the downward side after coming out within the 1.1290 range. Support levels are currently near the 10-day moving average at 1.1206 points.

US Markit PMI data dropped by 0.6 points to go out at 51.4 points for September following a 0.9 point drop to 52.0 points in August. Index is now ranging from 50.7-52.9 for 2016, with September’s levels going at 53.1 points. New index data showed a decrease to 51.0 points from last August’s 52.7 points, its lowest level since December 2015. Manufacturing data also went out lower than expected as compared to similar technical readings of composite EU data.

Andrea ForexMart -> Technical Analysis for USD/CAD: September 26, 2016 (9/26/2016 2:51:52 AM)

The USD/CAD pair went down slightly last week, plummeting at 1.30 points. The currency pair then bounced back from the support barrier, and if the pair goes above the hammer formed then this would mean a very bullish sign for the USD/CAD, and the market would be able to go over the 1.35 trading range.

The oil market is wielding its influence over the financial market, especially since the CAD has become a proxy currency for commodity traders. However, the oil market in general does not look very promising, and speculators are stating that it is only a matter of time before oil prices would take a turn for the worst. This might cause the USD to increase in relation to the CAD in the long-run.

The market is generally expected to go above the 1.35-point level. However, investors are not expected this to occur anytime soon. Pullback levels might be able to offer some measure of projected value and support, given that the market stays above the 1.30 trading range. Buyers are expected to always return to the commodities market, and an upward pressure for the currency market is now felt especially for the possible breakout which could happen at any point now that the volume has returned to the foreign exchange market.

Andrea ForexMart -> Fundamental Analysis for GBP/USD: September 27, 2016 (9/26/2016 10:53:42 PM)

The GBP/USD pair continues to trade at the bottom of its range, closing Monday’s trading session at 1.2950 points. The pair has not yet been able to make a proper recovery from its past price lows. The value of the currency pair will be most likely be decided by the impending adjustments between other currency pairs, particularly the expected EUR/GBP flows towards the end of September.

The GBP/USD pair had strong resistance levels at 1.3140 last week and has plummeted back to the support levels at 1.2950 after failing to go above the resistance level. The pair also momentarily decreased to 1.2910 before going back above 1.2950 points. Analysts are expecting the pair to be bullish for the rest of the daily trading session, possibly going up to the resistance level of 1.3000 points. If the pair manages to go over this resistance level then this would enable the pair to go in the range of 1.3080-3100, where a lot of sells happened during the last time the pair has reached this level.

However, it is still yet to be seen whether the pair would be able to maintain its current value at 1.2950, and could possible lead to a low on Friday at 1.2910 and then 1.2870. The EUR has a somewhat stable bullish stance, and the GBP is also expected to follow this bullish bearing of the EUR, since there are no major UK news that is expected to come out within this period.

Andrea ForexMart -> Technical Analysis for EUR/USD: September 27, 2016 (9/27/2016 12:50:18 AM)

The EUR/USD pair rallied up to 1.1278 during Monday’s trading session after positive US housing date enabled investors to avoid the advancement towards a major resistance range. US new home sales went down slightly in August, dropping at a 609,000 annual rate and decreasing by 7.6% as compared to the data last July, lower than the expected 8.6% decline. The USD was also strengthened by comments from the Fed’s lacker which has stated that there is a strong possibility of an interest rate hike in December. Germany’s IFO survey has indicated that the business environment in the EU has increased significantly in September, going up to 109.5 from August’s 106.2, with increase in both the expectations and assessments sector.

The EUR/USD pair meanwhile continues to trade within its current range, suspending its recovery at main resistance levels, with a descent at 1.1615 points. The currency pair also experienced multiple intraday highs and lows within the 1.1280 trading range, and the upward potential will continue to be suspended as long as the price of the pair remains below 1.1280 points. Divergences can already be seen in the 4-hour chart, and the price continues to remain above a highly bullish 20 SMA which has already went above the 100 SMA. There is a high probability of a bearish trading session on Tuesday if there will be more decreases below the 1.1225 range. If the USD continues to strengthen, then there is a probable bearish trade point at 1.1160.

Andrea ForexMart -> Technical Analysis for USD/JPY: September 27, 2016 (9/27/2016 2:53:50 AM)

The Japanese yen strengthened in the middle of risk aversion and is remaining to be a safe haven currency after the Bank of Japan’s statement that the central bank is preparing to implement additional regulations which are intended to increase inflation rates did not hinder the growth of the yen’s value.

The demand for the JPY was supported by the risk-off sentiment, with the price dropping from the present Asian high of 101.00 down to the immediate support level at 100.40 where there is a decreased downward pressure. The 50, 100, and 200 EMAs all declined while the moving averages all went lower in the 4-hour chart. Resistance levels are currently at 101.40 while support levels are at 100.40 points.

The technical indicators for the currency pair are all on the downward trend. However, MACD levels are sustained at the same range which is indicative of positive sellers data. On the other hand, RSI continues to remain over the expected oversold area. The USD/JPY is generally facing a bearish stance, and a closing value at 100.40 might trigger losses and may bring down the pair to the 100.00 range. The USD/JPY may also experience a slight increase if the support for the pair is sustained.

Andrea ForexMart -> GBP/USD Technical Analysis: September 27, 2016 (9/27/2016 4:27:50 AM)

The dollar still hovers in the pressured area compared to other major pairs, seeing that the stocks remains affected regarding the Fed's resolution. Traders are taking some precautionary movements for every execution because of the impact that the U.S Presidential debate might bring.

The pair experienced a downward pressured on Monday because the pound and dollar throw over their acquired profits on Friday. Moreover, the pair also indicated a steep decline against the level of support lied at 1.2900.

The 50, 100 and 200 EMAs sustained a bearish outlook. The resistance is found in the 1.3000 level, support is present in the 1.2900 level.

MACD fail off but give out strength for the sellers. RSI is positioned in the negative condition.

Andrea ForexMart -> USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: September 27, 2016 (9/27/2016 5:06:03 AM)

The USD/JPY stopped at 0.665 or -0.66% at 100.306. Financiers of the Japanese yen attacked the US investors on Monday as they kept arguing about the BoJ's plan to change the monetary policy.

Despite of the preparation by many investors for the upcoming OPEC meeting and the first presidential debate of the United States, the Yen merchants awaits for the statement of the central bank Japanese Governor Kuroda. As he affirmed last Monday about the readiness of Nichigin regarding the usage of policy tool for the accomplishing the 2% target of inflation.

Furthermore, news released some information during the meeting by which the bank is confident that they will reach their goal, but there are some uncertainties which might leave an impact for accommodating the renewed policy.

The movement of price can be identified upon the debate outcome, considering that this is the major news at this moment.

In case that Mr.Trump got the victory then stocks presumably would be sold-off whereby investors of yen would be safe because it will settle on a higher position.
