02 February 2015: USD/JPY: general overview

USD/JPY: general overview
Affected by US downbeat data, the greenback lost almost 100 points against the yen last week. GDP growth rates in the fourth quarter dropped to 2.6% against the previous value of 5% but analysts had predicted a decline to only 3.3%. The consumer spending index amounted to –0,1% given the negative growth rates. This news dropped the USD/JPY substantially, but the pair still fails to consolidate below a resistance level of 117.25.

Today, February 2nd, market participants will pay attention to January's data on the ISM manufacturing index in the USA (17:00,GMT 2) and January's data on construction spending.

The MACD histogram is in the negative zone on a H4 chart, its volumes are increasing, confirming a further downward movement. Bollinger bands are not producing any clear signals. The downward movement is limited by a support level of 117.25 which sellers have not been able to overcome for almost 2 weeks.

Resistance levels: 117.70, 117.90, 118.25, 118.50.
Support levels: 117.25, 116.90, 116.60.
