Do you believe in USD?

The released in the morning Corporate Service Price Index for December showed further rise of the inflation in Japan confirming that Abe’s hopes and promises are materializing. Nevertheless, the market completely ignored the report staying focused on the coming FOMC meeting. USD still cannot get enough demand to resume the full-blown rise against the yen, though the Japanese currency is not favored by the traders at the moment judging by its crosses. The released overnight US housing data only strengthened the doubts about the stability of the US recovery. Nevertheless, the market believes in Bernanke, and waits for further QE3 tapering during the nearing FOMC meeting. This notion may give the pair enough support to reach the initial resistance at 103.14.
