Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) price action suggests investor indecision and impending volatility
The Dollar/Yen finished slightly lower on Wednesday, while trading inside the previous day’s range. The price action suggests investor indecision and impending volatility. Investors showed little reaction to a volatile Treasury market where yields dipped and firmed during the same session.
The price action suggests investors may be already squaring positions ahead of today’s European Central Bank monetary policy decisions and next week’s interest rate decisions from the U.S. Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 109.33.
The projected lower bound is: 107.12.
The projected closing price is: 108.23.

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 92.6830. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 6 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 51.39. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 21 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 13. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
