Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views USD/JPY

03 Sep 2014 02:34GMT

USD/JPY - ..... The greenback continued its recent winning streak and strengthened to a fresh 8-month high of 105.27 ahead of Tokyo open on renewed broad-based selling in the yen following Tuesday's rally on market speculation Japanese PM Abe will appoint Yasuhisa Shiozaki, deputy policy chief of the LPD who may shift pension funds toward riskier assets.

Current firmness due to 130 points gain in the N225 index suggests buying dlr on dips for a re-test of 2014 peak at 105.45 is recommended. However, sharp gain is unlikely to be seen as market participants are awaiting release of a slew of U.S. data, then the U.S. Beige book later today (18:00GMT) to get a snapshot of economic health in each of the central bank's districts for hints of Fed to ending its extraordinary monetary policy and normalizing interest rate.

Bids are noted at 105.00-104.80 region, with stops below there. On the upside, offers are placed at 105.30-40 and then 105.50 with stops touted above there.

Last night the greenback rallied to a fresh 8-month high of 105.21 in NY morning after the release of much stronger-than-expected U.S. ISM manufacturing PMI which came in better-than-expected at 59.0 versus economists' forecast of 56.8. However, profit-taking offers capped dlr's upside somewhat n more offers are tipped at 105.40/45. On the downside, bids are located at 105.00, 104.85-80 and more at 104.70.

Wednesday will see the release of U.K. BRC shop price index, China's NBS non-manufacturing PMI, Australia's GDP, China's HSBC services PMI, German and eurozone and U.K. Markit services PMI, eurozone retail sales, U.S. Redbook, ISM-New York index, Canada's rate decision, U.S. factory orders, durable goods and Fed's Beige book.

Stronger US economic data boosted the US dollar to a fresh 14-month high. Most attention was paid to the ISM manufacturing report, which was stronger than expected, but so too was construction spending. US interest rates also rose, but equities were subdued, the S&P500 down 0.2% currently.

Current Conditions: RISK-ON?
GVI Forex john 16:12 GMT 09/02/2014  - My Profile

Current Market Conditions:
Tuesday was a clear RISK-ON session until U.S. markets resumed trading after a Monday holiday. Equity trading in the States turned  cautious following last week's surge. Furthermore, September historically is the weakest month of the year for stocks. The EURUSD is still holding in range of the 1.3100 level.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are higher. The 10-yr bund is 0.929%  +4.5bp. Peripheral bond yields are mostly higher.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt  yield is 2.42%  +4.0bp. I see a +25bp BOE rate hike in February 2015, subject to future data.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.405%, +6.2bp. The psychological pivot remains 2.40%.
  • Far East equities closed mostly higher. Bourses in Europe ended largely up. U.S. shares are mostly lower.

    The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields. This aligns all the colors in the chart to reflect risk-on (green) and risk-off(red).

UK i tend to follow my own advice so what i write here is generally what im doing/will do. i positioned myself for a 16537 break earlier today but covered after break of 165 just abv the 55 week ma. still looking heavy maybe can do 16480/85. there is a minor fib at 16470 which will probably trigger a fall to the big 38.2 at 16435 once done. however tomorrows servs pmi could beat and give some v temporary reprieve back towards 16537 where it would be a good level to short tomorrow. pre todays panic i was looking to sell the 200 day ma but clearly this is off the table for now. a v bad nfp/negative HE are required to get those levels in play, something thats not looking likely at this stage (today ism emp a good strong print, we have a couple more to go pre nfp).
i am certainly not looking to buy cable while US rate revaluation taking place and scot ref hedging being done. i dont panic, but others do and we could easily get some deep falls in gbp related pairs.

SMV (and others), suggest reading this article I wrote today:

The tendency of most retail traders, not only in forex but in all markets is to look to buy low and sell high or vice versa. It may be human nature in trading to look for something that appears cheap to buy or expensive to sell but is this the right strategy? It may just be the opposite as I will explain in this very timely article.

EURUSD has been lagging today, perhaps getting some support from a bounce in its battered crosses.

Also, 1.3105 is the next key target and the low has been 1.3110.

By the way, bond yields are moving up today, including Europe, which would help explain the firmer USDJOY
