Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) likely to continue to be determined by trader reaction to Treasury yields
Even with U.S. investors pricing in a 100-percent chance of a rate cut at the Fed’s next meeting on July 31, the direction of the USD/JPY is likely to continue to be determined by trader reaction to Treasury yields. If yields firm, the Forex pair is likely to rally on short-covering and profit-taking. Weaker yields will put renewed pressure on the USD/JPY.
The Fed is going to remain data dependent ahead of its July interest rate decision so we could see a reaction to this week’s major reports including the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence and U.S. Final GDP.
Fed Chair Jerome Powell is also scheduled to speak on Tuesday afternoon. Traders will be looking to react to any comments about monetary policy, the strength of the economy and the timing of potential rate cuts.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 13.6477. This is an oversold reading.
