USDJPY at 8-month high, BoJ Core CPI better than expected

25 November, 2016

The dollar rose to an eight month high against the yen during a holiday thin trading session yesterday. Earlier today, the BoJ's gauge of inflation showed core inflation rising 0.3% from a year ago in October, improving from September's print of 0.2%. Official government data showed inflation excluding fresh food falling 0.4% in October however.

EURUSD Intra-day Analysis

EURUSD (1.0575): EURUSD closed yesterday's session with a proper doji coming off the previous day's strong declines which saw the single currency breakdown below 1.0600. The failure to test 1.0500 support and a bullish close today could signal the much anticipated reversal in EURUSD. Resistance is seen at 1.07650. On the 4-hour chart, EURUSD is seen consolidating at the current levels. Look for a close above 1.0600 for the price to extend gains towards 1.07650 over the coming days. The 4-hour Stochastics also shows a bullish divergence which will be confirmed is support is formed at 1.0600.

USDJPY Daily Analysis

USDJPY (113.30): After rising to an 8-month high, USDJPY is currently making a minor pullback. Resistance comes in at 114.00 which was previously tested in late February/early March this year. Establishing resistance here could signal a potential retracement to the rally as support near 108.00 could be tested. However, it is best to remain on the sidelines and wait for further clues on the daily chart time frame.

USDCAD Intra-day Analysis

USDCAD (1.3485): USDCAD's doji closing yesterday could signal a near-term decline as prices are likely to fall towards 1.3255 - 1.3285. However, for this to be validated a bearish close today is essential and preferably below last week's low of 1.3400. The newly plotted median line could confirm this view as the price could test 1.3400 support. However, the bearish bias will be invalidated if USDCAD closes bullish above 1.3500 which could signal further upside continuation with the eventual target towards 1.3800.
