USD/JPY: will we finally get a break of range? - FXStreet

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained that USD/JPY has extended its limited range for one more week, still glued to 120.00 price zone, and with no aims to break it according in the nearer term.

Key Quotes:

"By the ends of October, the FED and the BOJ will have economic policy meetings, in which the last will review its forecast and economic conditions, and there's some speculation pointing for an extension of Japanese monetary stimulus by then. But in the meantime, the range set late August between 118.65 and 121.35 will likely prevail."

"Technically, the daily chart shows that the price has continued developing well below the 200 DMA that converges with the main resistance and top of the range a 121.35, whilst the 100 DMA extended its decline above this last. In the same chart, the technical indicators are still lacking directional strength around their mid-lines, maintaining the neutral stance."

"In the short term the 4 hours chart shows that the price is around its moving averages, whist the technical indicators are also neutral, with a tepid bearish slope right above their mid-lines."

AUD/USD: at major pivotal level on big week

AUD/USD has started out in early Asia with a finger or two dropping from its grip in the 0.7320's while oscillating below the pivot of 0.7233 albeit against a positive backdrop of last week's continuation of the bullish recovery.
