Forex pairs in this Article » USD/JPY (Chicago) - USD/JPY reached 99.70 highs but was unable to maintain performance. At 99.57, the pair attempts to outweigh bearish pressure unsuccessfully.


According to Jim Langlands from FXcharts, “the dollar climbed to a 4 week high against the yen as traders began to focus on the possibility of the Fed winding back their stimulus programme sooner than previously anticipated. It has yet to reach 100 though although added pressure was put on the Yen after the release of the data yesterday, which showed that Japan continued to see net capital outflow in terms of security investments in October. It was reported that residents’ buying of foreign bonds and notes exceeded sales, for the 4th consecutive month, keeping the dollar underpinned. Overall though, little has changed from a technical point of view. Although the dollar has taken out some of the resistance levels as it inches its way towards 100, having touched 99.80, it has come off its high and is currently sitting up against the Fibo resistance at 99.65 (76.4% of 100.36/96056).”
