    USD/JPY Technical Analysis US Dollar Japanese Yen

     

    An initial support is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 112.12 low to 113.08 high. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support at 112.70 on the hourly chart.

     

    The trend line support is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 112.12 low to 113.08 high. Therefore, if the pair continues to moves down, there are chances of it finding bids near the 112.80-70 levels.

     

    On the upside, the 113.00 handle is an initial resistance followed by the last swing high of 113.08. A close above 113.80 could take the pair towards the next resistance at 113.50. Overall, buying dips in the near term towards the 112.80-70 levels can be considered with a stop below the trend line support.

    Japanese Machine Tool Orders

    Today in Japan, the Prelim Machine Tool Orders report for Sep 2017 was released by the Japan Machine Tool Builders” Association. The market was positioned for a rise of around 38% compared with the same month a year ago.

     

    The outcome was above the forecast of 38% since there was a rise in the orders by 45.3%. It was also above the last +36.3%. Earlier, the Machinery new orders figure for August 2017 posted a rise of 4.4% compared with the same month a year ago. It was above the forecast of 0.8% and a lot better than the last decline of 7.5%.

     

    Overall, the USD/JPY pair might continue to struggle in the short term and could even retest the 112.00 support area.

     

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis

    The US Dollar recently attempted a break of the 112.80 resistance against the Japanese yen. The USD/JPY pair failed to gain momentum and started a downside move below the 112.60 level.

     

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis US Dollar Japanese Yen

     

    The pair declined and traded below a key bullish trend line with support at 112.50 on the hourly chart. A low was formed at 111.97 before the pair started a correction. It recovered well and traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 112.82 high to 111.97 low.

     

    However, a bearish trend line at 112.60 prevented gains along with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 112.82 high to 111.97 low. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is at 112.62 to act as a major hurdle for buyers.

     

    As long as the pair is below the trend line resistance at 112.60 and the 100 hourly SMA, there is a chance of USD/JPY retesting the 112.00 support area.

This is a new four-month high, and the Flash Manufacturing Output Index jumped to 53.5, which is a lot more than the last 52.5 and strongest growth for four months.

However, the downside move was protected by the 111.0 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

     

    Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 111.10 low to 112.71 high also prevented further losses along with a major bullish trend line forming with support at 112.10 on the hourly chart.

     

    The pair is currently following the trend line support and trading above 112.15. Buyers need to gain momentum and take the pair above 112.50 to challenge 112.70 again. A close above 112.70 is needed for further gains in the near term.

    Japan’s Industrial Production

    Today in Japan, the Industrial Production report for July 2017 was released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The market was positioned for a decline of 0.8% compared with the previous month.

     

    The actual result was around the forecast, as there was a decline in the Industrial Production by 0.8%. Looking at the yearly change in the production, there was a rise of 4.7% in July 2017, similar to the last +4.7%. On the other hand, the Capacity Utilization declined by 1.8% in July 2017, compared with the last increase of 2.1%.

     

    Overall, the USD/JPY pair might correct a few pips towards 110.00, but downsides remain supported in the near term.

     

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis

    The US Dollar made a decent ground this week and moved above the 110.00 resistance level against the Japanese yen. The USD/JPY pair recently traded as high as 110.72 where it faced sellers and currently consolidating gains.

    At the moment, the pair is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 109.35 low to 110.72 high. Moreover, there is a major ascending channel forming with support at 110.40 on the hourly chart.

     

    It seems like sellers might succeed in breaking the channel support at 110.40. In the mentioned scenario, the next immediate support sits at 110.20, which is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 109.35 low to 110.72 high.

     

    However, the most important support is near 110.00, which is just around the 50% Fib level of the same wave. The overall trend is still bullish for USD/JPY, but there can be a few downside corrections in the short term.

    Japan’s Industrial Production

    Today in Japan, the Industrial Production for May 2017 was released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The market was expecting an increase of 1.7% in the production compared with the previous month.

     

    The actual result was below the forecast, as there was an increase of 1.6%. In terms of the yearly change, there was an increase of 4.9% in May 2017, which was well below the last rise of 6.5%. There was a decline of 2.1% in inventories in May 2017 compared with the previous month.

     

    Overall, the USD/JPY pair may correct a few pips towards the 110.70-80 levels, but likely to remain in a downtrend in the short term.

     

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis

    The US Dollar was under a lot of pressure lately and moved below the 111.25 support area against the Japanese yen. The USD/JPY pair even broke the 111.00 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average to trade towards 110.30.

     

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis US Dollar Japanese Yen

     

    The pair after trading as low as 111.30 started a correction and currently trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 111.28 high to 110.30 low. On the upside, there is a major bearish trend line with resistance at 110.70 forming on the hourly chart.

     

    The same trend line also coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 111.28 high to 110.30 low. So, if the pair corrects towards 110.70 or 110.80, it is most likely to face sellers in the near term.

     

    On the downside, the recent low of 110.30 is a decent support. Below 110.30, the all-important 110.00 handle could be challenged.

    Above 112.30, the next hurdle is at 112.80, which was a support earlier and now a resistance. So, if the pair has to continue higher, it has to break 112.30 and 112.80 for sustained gains.
