Current trend
USD fell against JPY on Thursday, being under pressure from weak US statistics. Also, market uncertainty provides significant support to JPY. Thursday's data from the US indicated an increase in Initial Jobless Claims by 222K, which turned out to be worse than the data for the previous period (219K) and the forecast of 216K. Import Price Index in May decreased by –0.3% MoM and –1.5% YoY, with the forecast of –0.2% MoM and –1.4% YoY. Export Price Index showed a decrease of –0.2% MoM and –0.7% YoY, which also turned out to be worse than forecasts of –0.1% MoM and –0.5% YoY.
Today, the instrument is relatively stable. Some support for JPY has been provided by macroeconomic statistics on Japan Industrial Production. In April, production volumes increased by 0.6% MoM, which coincided with the forecasts. Capacity Utilization in April increased by 1.6% MoM after the decline by 0.4% MoM in the previous month.
Support and resistance
Bollinger Bands in D1 chart decrease gradually. The price range is narrowing, reflecting ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD is growing, keeping a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic interrupted steady growth and reversed into a descending plane, responding to the "bearish" trend, observed since the middle of this week.
One should wait for clarification of the situation to open new transactions.
Resistance levels: 108.47, 108.79, 109.00, 109.30.
Support levels: 108.06, 107.80, 107.47.
