FXWIREPRO: USD/JPY Edges Higher from Fresh Multi-Month Lows at 109.95

  • USD/JPY hit fresh multi-month lows at 109.94, it was seen below the 110 mark in Oct 2014, when the BoJ surprised markets with extra easing measures. 
  • The pair came under renewed pressure after WSJ reported PM Abe saying “we must definitely avoid competitive devaluation, and I think we should refrain from arbitrary intervention in currency markets.”  
  • USD/JPY slipped from 110.50 to a low of 109.95 after the comments, has pared losses to edge above the 110 handle. 
  • BOJ's Governor Kuroda was speaking in a parliament committee and saying that he is willing to cut rates further, yet there has not been a considerable reaction to that in the price. 
  • Pair remains rangebound on the day, with immediate support at 109.94 (Apr 5th lows) and further below at 109.91 (trendline).  
  • On the upside resistance is located at 111.24 (5-DMA) ahead of 111.35 (Apr 5th highs). 
  • Our previous call (http://www.econotimes.com/FxWirePro-USD-JPY-slips-below-111-handle-to-hit-fresh-3-week-lows-at-11078-189212) has hit all targets. 
  • Focus remains on the FOMC minutes release amid an otherwise data-empty US session. 
  • We would reamain on the sidelines for now as Techs are inconclusive.
