Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) softness in the greenback
The US dollar has pulled back a bit during the trading session again on Thursday, reaching towards the ¥110 level, an area that is major support. The moving averages above of course cause some noise in general, right around the ¥111 level. Ultimately, the market should continue to go higher if we can get some type of “risk on move” in the stock market, but the greenback is going to be a bit softer than it was before after the Federal Reserve did everything it could to knock down interest rate expectations. In other words, this is one of the few places the US dollar may strengthen against other currencies, but it won’t exactly rip to the upside.
