AceTraderFx Apr 26: Daily Recommendations on Major –USD/JPY

flag_yen.gif DAILY MARKET OUTLOOK on Major

Update Time: 26 Apr 2021 09:30GMT

USD/JPY - 107.72
Despite dollar's resumption of decline from March's 1-year peak at 110.96 to a fresh 6-week bottom of 107.49 in at New York open on Friday, subsequent bounce in tandem with recovery in US yields suggests temporary low is possibly made and above 108.54/62 would bring stronger retracement to 108.80/85 but 109.09 should hold today, yield retreat.

On the downside, below 107.49 would risk marginal weakness to 107.77 before prospect of rebound due to loss of momentum.

Data to be released later today:
Germany Ifo business climate, Ifo current conditions, Ifo expectations.
U.S. durable goods, durables ex-transport, durables ex-defence, Dallas Fed manufacturing index on Monday.

Update Time: 27 Apr 2021 03:00GMT

UR/USD - 1.2080
Euro's retreat from Monday's 8-week high of 1.2116 to 1.2062 suggests recent strong upmove has possibly made a temporary top and subsequent bounce to 1.2094 would bring initial consolidation in Asia, below 1.2062 would yield retracement to 1.2047, then later towards 1.1994.

Only above 1.2116 risks marginal gain, however, loss of upward momentum should cap price well below 1.2169 and yield a long-overdue correction ahead of Wednesday's key FOMC announcement.

Economic calendar in the euro area countries is pretty light with data due out from Italy (please see EI page for details) which will be overlooked by traders.

Update Time: 28 Apr 2021 03:00GMT

EUR/USD - 1.2088
Yesterday's rebound from 1.2057 to 1.2091 suggests pullback from Monday's 8-week high at 1.2116 has ended and recent strong upmove from 1.1705 (March) would yield marginal gain, loss of upward momentum should cap euro at 1.2160/69 and yield a long-overdue correction.

A daily close below 1.2057 would be 1st signal temporary top is made, then stronger retracement towards chart objective at 1.1994 would follow later this week.

The euro area countries will release a slew of eco. data (please refer to our EI page for details), pay attention to German Gfk consumer confidence at 06:00GMT.

Dollar's rally from last Friday's 6-week low at 107.49 to 108.77 yesterday, then intra-day break there on rise in U.S. yields suggests decline from March's 1-year 110.96 peak has made a temporary bottom and stronger retracement to 109.70/75 would be seen after consolidation before prospect of retreat due to overbought condition.

EUR/USD - 1.2134
Euro's intra-day rally above Monday's 1.2116 high to a fresh 8-week peak of 1.2134 Wednesday after Fed's dovish hold suggests recent strong upmove from March's 4-1/2 month trough at 1.1705 would head to 1.2175/80, however, overbought condition should prevent strong gain and reckon 1.2200/10 would cap upside and yield a long-overdue correction.

A daily close below 1.2102 would signal temporary top is in place and heads back towards 1.2057 but 1.1994/99 should contain weakness.

USD/JPY - 108.90
Despite yesterday's retreat from a near 2-week high at 109.07 to 108.58 in post-FOMC New York, then 108.44 at Asian open today, intra-day rise in tandem with U.S. yields suggests pullback has ended and upmove from April's 6-week 107.49 trough would head to 109.20/25 after consolidation, however, reckon 109.75/77 should cap upside today.

On the downside, only below 108.38/44 would risk weakness to 108.08, then possibly 107.91/95.

Despite euro's recovery after yesterday's resumption of recent decline from April's 8-week peak of 1.2149 to 1.2000 (Europe), outlook remains mildly bearish for one more fall, however, near term loss of downward momentum should keep price above sup at 1.1943 and bring rebound later today or tomorrow.

Only a daily close above 1.2035 (Tuesday's New York high) signals temporary low is in place and may risk stronger retracement towards 1.2075 before another fall.
