USD/JPY: levels to trade on the Fed’s meeting
Information is not investment advice
USD/JPY consolidated between 108.40 and 108.95 ahead of the Federal Reserve’s meeting later today. The market has been waiting for this event for a long time and it should pave the future of the currency pair. The short-term dynamics will surely be volatile.
Technically, resistance looks harder to break than support. However, if USD/JPY manages to get beyond 109.00, it will be able to target 109.60 (50% Fibo of the April-June decline). On the downside, we focus on the 108.35 level (50-day MA). A decline below this point will open the way down to 107.85 (early June lows). The next support will be at 107.50.
Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January.
