The JPY bulls maintain following a slew of blended Japanese monetary information released last hour, fuelling fresh supply in USD/JPY, in an attempt to cap the restoration once again near 111.35 levels.
The spot caught a fresh bid tone last hour, in reaction to the extension of wide USD, with the USD index now breaking higher above 99 handle. Markets appeared beyond yesterday’s downbeat US dataflow, as awareness shifts towards the much-awaited US increase Q1 GDP document and revised customer sentiment records, so as to wrap up an eventful week.
Technical Levels to watch: A break above 111.60 (Apr 27high) would expose 111.78 (4-week tops) and 112 (round figure). On the other hand, a breach of support at 111 (key support) could yield a test of 110.88 (5-DMA) and 110.01/00 (10-DMA/ zero figure).
