Forex Today: USD/JPY Hits 38-Year High at ¥161.75

The weak Yen and strong US Dollar pushed the USD/JPY currency pair to trade higher at a new 38-year high of ¥161.75

  1. The Japanese Yen is continuing to weaken, with the USD/JPY currency pair trading at a new 38-year high of ¥161.75 within the past few hours. Trend traders will be interested in being long of this pair, and/or in certain Yen crosses. Vanguard sees ¥170 as a possible target if the Bank of Japan fails to boost yields soon.
  2. First round results from the Parliamentary election in France suggest that the far-right RN party will struggle to win a Parliamentary majority, and that is keeping the Euro today. However, the bullish momentum has run out of steam.
  3. In the Forex market, the Euro is the strongest major currency since the Tokyo open, while the New Zealand Dollar is the weakest. It is worth noting that the US Dollar remains within a valid long-term bullish trend.
  4. Stock markets advanced in Asia and look quite bullish in most of the rest of the world.
  5. German Preliminary CPI data released yesterday came in lower than expected, showing a month-on-month increase of only 0.1% when an increase of 0.2% was expected.
  6. US ISM Manufacturing PMI data came in slightly lower than expected.
  7. There will be releases today of the Eurozone Flash CPI estimate and US JOLTS Job Openings data.
