The pandemic continues hurting economic activity in China, the war in Ukraine is hitting the entire European economy, and the Fed's efforts to control inflation threaten to trigger a recession.
USD/JPY is pressured by resistance
2020-04-01 • Updated
USD/JPY has declined from 111.70 and went into consolidation around 107.50. On the D1, we can see that yesterday’s attempt of bulls to bring the price higher failed: the candlestick has a long upper wick and closed below all the key daily moving averages.
The United States will release ISM Manufacturing PMI at 17:00 MT time on Wednesday, April 1. The release will likely bring the USD in motion. The decline below this week’s low at 107.10 will open the way down to 106.50 (50% Fibo retracement of the March advance). The next level to watch on the downside is at 106.50. Resistance lies at 108.80 and 108.30.
