Technical analysis of USD/JPY for June 01, 2018


Technical Outlook:

USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. The pair recorded a series of higher tops and higher bottoms, which confirmed the bullish outlook. The 50-period moving average is acting as a support now. The relative strength index is bullish above its neutrality level at 50, calling for a new up leg. To sum up, as long as 109.25 holds on the downside, look for a further advance with targets at 110 and 110.35 in extension.

Fundamentals Overview:

The latest signs of a robust job market will strengthen the hands of officials who favor four rate moves in 2018. Officials will update their projections for the rate path at their meeting on June 12-13. Unemployment fell to 3.8% in May—the lowest level in 18 years—after declining to 3.9% in April. The rate had held at 4.1% for the six months before that.

Joblessness is now well below the level all the Fed's officials regard as likely to be sustainable over the long run without fueling excessive inflation and asset bubbles. Employers have added more than 200,000 jobs a month this year, well above the level the Fed's officials think is needed to hold the jobless rate steady.
