EUR/JPY: The EUR/JPY pair is now testing the lower level of the Kumo. A failed attempt to move higher will push prices into the previous support and even lower. On the other hand, a successful attempt to enter the cloud will indicate further bullish implications.
The VIX index rose to the highest level since early December as risk sentiment took a turn for the worse on Monday, while oil prices retreated to USD 86 a barrel.
A mix of reasons like valuation- macro and earnings scared European markets that corrected by -5% lower, US markets however staged a significant rebound. S&P 500 recovered a -4% correction in the opening hours, to close higher by 0.3%. Investors bought the dip in growth, but most sectors were higher in risk on sentiment. Consumer discretionary and industrials led the market and defensives lagged. Small caps outperformed massively, Dow Jones closed up by 0.3% and NASDAQ 0.6%. Asian markets have not joined the rebound as they are down 1-2% and US futures back in red this morning mostly led by tech names.
In the middle of September 2022, the Canadian dollar has fallen to a 2-year low against the USD.
The US dollar index has all chances of reaching the 2000s high of 120.00.
