USD/JPY – 107.98… Although dlr ‘gapped-up’ higher to a fresh 2-week peak at 108.37 in Australia after Reuters reported Sun a Yomiuri poll showed public approval for Japan PM Abe’s government has slumped, lack of follow-through buying n continued concerns over the Ebola case in NY prompted profit-taking. Dlr later retreated to 107.93 in Tokyo morning.
Today, dlr’s retreat from 108.37 suggests initial consolidation with mild downside bias would be seen ahead European open but as long as 107.79 (Fri’s low in NY) holds, outlook remains mildly bullish for marginal gain after consolidation n therefore, buying dlr on dips is the favoured strategy. Bids are noted at 108.00-107.90 with mixture of bids n stops at 107.80/75 n further out at 107.50/45. On the upside, offers are placed at 108.30-40 n then 108.50 with stops emerging just above 108.80.
