USDJPY is stuck between the big figures but focus grows on the 110 level

  • USDJPY finds itself stuck between 110.00 and 111.00
  • Rallies sold into heavily 110.80-90
  • Large focus gathering on the 110.00 level
  • 61.8 fib of Sep 2017 swing becoming increasingly important at 110.14. Bids ahead, stops under
  • 110.00 is also becoming a very big level
  • Large 110 barrier interest said to be from Japanese exporters, if busted, would remove large exporter offers 115.00-116.00
  • Strong bids also sitting ahead with large stops building on a break
  • Japanese institutional buyers said to be lurking under 110 may slow a break
  • 100 WMA also sits at 109.92. A good break would target the lower end of the main 2017 range in the 108’s
  • Intraday, support sits at 110.50/60, 110.35/40, 110.20. 55 MMA at 110.62 could be important on a closing basis as the month winds down.
  • Up top, small stops lurking through 111.00 and a break back above would meet resistance around 111.20/25, 111.50 and old resistance at 111.65 (200 DMA 111.67)
  • The longer we go without breaking 111.00, the greater the chance we see 110 taken out
  • US Industrial production as good as it gets for the data. Government shutdown talks the bigger fish being fried for the rest of the week
