Some Interesting Levels In The FX Markets This Week.

We are testing some interesting levels on the four major dollar pairs – we’ll quickly review the charts for the week and highlight any risk events to be aware of.

USD News Events

  • Tuesday 14 April – Core Retail Sales and PPI
  • Thursday 16 April – Building Permits, Unemployment Claims and Philly index
  • Friday 17 April – CPI and Consumer Sentiment
  • Thursday 16/Friday 17 April – G20 meetings

USDJPY To Retest The Recent Highs?

A couple of interesting levels on the USDJPY worth keeping an eye on.

  • 121.20 – some interesting market structure here recently with support (demand) turning into resistance (strong supply in mid March). We could imagine a scenario where there might be some more sell orders here. We are at the 78.6 retracement for those who like order in the universe with their breakfast.
  • 122.05 – some sort of reaction at this level given the previous supply is within reason. We had previous strong supply and we have the 161 abcd completing into the highs.

Sell orders here somewhere?

The yen looks quite this week in terms of planned risk events.
