THE EU must be stoking the ire of the Bank of Japan at this stage. Euro-yen at 11-year lows is begging for intervention from the BOJ. Look to buy on dips to ¥100.60-70. Forex.com is currently quoting ¥101.19-¥101.23.
Dollar-yen refuses to break out from between ¥78.00 and ¥76.00 finding the ¥76.00 level a firm support area. Dollar strength over the past few weeks has not given the same boost to dollar-yen, and so for now the downward trend remains firmly in tact and a break below ¥76 could trigger further selling. Capital Spreads quotes ¥76.66-¥76.67.
Canadian dollar may have had a fantastic run over the last two and a half years against the greenback, but support now seems to be ebbing.
