Japanese Yen Outlook

Forex traders seem to be content in assuming that there is going to be stimulus coming out of the United States. This is showing up in the USD/JPY pair during the trading session on Wednesday, as we have seen the market break below the ¥105 level rather early in the day.

That being said, the market looks as if it is ready to continue drifting towards the lows, something that I have been talking about for a while. 

To the downside, I believe that the ¥104 level is probably the next target, as it has caused a bounce the last couple of times we have been down there. Breaking through their opens up the possibility of a move down to the ¥102 level, which was an even more important support level in the past. That being said, I would not expect to move much lower than that before the Bank of Japan will start to take action.

Momentum Indicators

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.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 29.4945. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 5 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 38.12. 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 59 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 -200.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 5 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 sell 6 period(s) ago.
