USD/JPY Price Congested Within the Channel Prior to FED

Septembris 20, 2017 15:05

As inflation recently in the US has had a recent slight increase near 1.9% p.a., it is still below their target range. Despite this, Actual QoQ GDP Growth has increased to 3%, well ahead of forecast and consensus, and this has seen Forward Company Earnings improve in the US also. The Fed will be conscious of all of this, however, as they saw a small increase in Unemployment and Inflation still below their target levels, they are inclined to keep the rates flat for this month.

The USD/JPY is in a congestion phase (violet channel) waiting for the always important FED decision and FOMC conference. 112.60 looks attractive too sellers and a heavy momentum spike above 111.80 could get the price to 112.30-60 where it could start selling towards camarilla pivot points shown on the chart. A drop below 111.20 could target 110.90 and 110.60. The event is expected to be volatile so be prepared for price whipsaws in both direction.
