USD/JPY keeps moving higher before the US Durables data

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY posted 5-day high at 109.37, coming closer to 6-year high on broad based USD strength.

Keeping busy everyday

Wednesday showed that US data mean a lot for the market, thus, scheduled for release today Durable Goods Orders may attract much attention as well. Investors want to see evidence of stable recovery in order to keep pricing-in earlier than expected Fed rate hike. However, the American data is not that positive – the strong New Home Sales came after weak Existing Home Sales. If Durables come out significantly below expectations, it may send the pair back to recent lows with 108.61 on the agenda.
