    Weekly USD/JPY Outlook: 2017, July 02 - July 09

    Weekly USD/JPY Outlook: 2017, July 02 - July 09

    Dollar/yen drifted to the upside, as the Bank of Japan was left alone as the most dovish central bank. Has the downtrend channel been broken for good? We are still within the wider range: 108.10 to 114.30, but higher.

    Weekly Outlook: 2017, July 02 - July 09-usdjpy-d1-fx-choice-limited.png

    1. The upcoming week opens the second half of the year and it’s with a bang. We have a full build up to the US Non-Farm Payrolls, with a small break for the 4th of July festivities. And, the Fed releases its meeting minutes, which may be somewhat less optimistic than the statement.
    2. In Japan, the Tankan indicators are worth mentioning: these are released on Sunday at 23:50 GMT. However, as usual, the US indicators will drive the pair more than anything else.
