    Analytical review:

    • The yen has grown by over 350 points against the US dollar since the beginning of June. At yesterday's trading session the currency pair held on to a local resistance level of 107.90 and the yen therefore continued to strengthen;
    • Important statistics on Japan's economy have been released today. The country's GDP showed a 0.5% growth in the first quarter living up to market expectations. In the previous quarter, the indicator amounted to 0.4%;
    • The demand for the safe harbour currency is supported against a background of US labour market weakness. The data published last week turned out to be the worst since September 2010;
    • The Commitments of Traders Report shows that important market operators have increased the number of their long positions by 6899 contracts to 95217 contracts. The number of short positions amounts to 109855 contracts;
    • A news factor is worth attention this week: US initial job claims (Thursday) and Japan's service sector activity index (Friday). These events may affect market volatility.


    • Positive macroeconomic data from Japan, US labour market weakness and increased volatility on financial markets pressure on the evolution of this currency pair. According to the Commitments of Traders Report, important operators have increased their long positions;
    • So, we expect that the yen will consolidate against the USD in the nearest future. We advise you to search for market entry points to open short positions.
