Forecast for USD/JPY on June 16, 2021


Yesterday the yen was completely in a neutral state, as the dollar strengthened just a bit, by only 1 point (0.01%) and the US stock indices lost a quarter of a percent. Today, the decisive factor will be the Federal Reserve's decision to change its attitude to monetary policy. We believe that Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will finally announce the start of discussions on this issue.


As a result, we expect the dollar to strengthen and attack to overcome the upper border of the descending price channel (110.39) on the daily chart. Above it is the green line of the rising price channel, which must also be overcome if the price wants to continue to rise. Technical levels are strong, and a powerful fundamental impulse is needed to overcome them. If successful, the 111.39 level will be the target - the low of October 21, 2018.


On the four-hour chart, the price is consolidating slightly above the balance and MACD indicator lines. The Marlin oscillator, taking advantage of this opportunity, is in a hurry to discharge itself after its rapid growth on Monday in order to continue rising. We are also waiting for growth.
