    USD/JPY weekly outlook: March 24 - 28

    USD/JPY weekly outlook: March 24 - 28

    The dollar slipped lower against the yen on Friday as fresh tensions between the West and Russia over Ukraine bolstered safe haven demand for the Japanese currency.

    USD/JPY slipped 0.14% to 102.24 at the close, down from Wednesday’s highs of 102.67. For the week, the pair was 0.34% higher.

    The pair was likely to find support at 101.60 and resistance at 102.67, Wednesday’s high.

    Caution returned to markets as the political standoff between the West and Russia following the annexation of Crimea escalated, after the U.S. imposed harsher sanctions on Moscow. The European Union also agreed to wider sanctions against Russia on Friday, fanning concerns over the impact on global growth.

    The dollar had racked up strong gains against the yen in the previous two sessions, bolstered by expectations that the Federal Reserve could hike interest rates earlier than previously thought.

    The dollar strengthened across the board Wednesday after Fed Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the bank could begin to raise interest rates about six months after its bond-buying program winds up, which is expected to happen this fall.

    The comments prompted investors to bring forward expectations for a rate hike to as soon as March of next year.

    The Fed also reduced its monthly bond purchases by an additional $10 billion to $55 billion at the conclusion of its two-day policy meeting, and said there was “underlying strength in the broader economy.”

    Elsewhere, the EUR/JPY ended Friday’s session at 141.09, recovering from one-week lows of 140.44 struck earlier in the day.

    The single currency was boosted after data on Friday showed that the region’s current account surplus rose to a record €25.3 billion in January.

    In the coming week, investors will be looking ahead to U.S. data from the housing sector, as well as reports on consumer confidence and durable goods. Meanwhile, Japan is to release a flurry of economic reports on Friday.

    Ahead of the coming week, Investing.com has compiled a list of these and other significant events likely to affect the markets.

    Monday, March 24
    • The U.S. is to release preliminary data on manufacturing activity.

    Tuesday, March 25

    USD/CAD weekly outlook: March 24 - 28

    USD/CAD weekly outlook: March 24 - 28

    The U.S. dollar fell against the Canadian dollar on Friday as the release of stronger-than-expected Canadian inflation data eased pressure on the Bank of Canada to cut interest rates.

    USD/CAD slid 0.18% to settle at 1.1220, backing off the four-and-a-half year peaks of 1.1277 reached on Thursday.

    The pair is likely to find support at 1.1121, Wednesday’s low and resistance at 1.1277.

    The Canadian dollar found support after Statistics Canada reported that consumer prices rose 0.8% in February, up from 0.3% in January. Analysts had forecast a 0.6% rise.

    On a year-over-year basis, inflation slowed to 1.1%, from 1.5% in January.

    The loonie, as the Canadian dollar is also known, received an additional boost after a separate report showed that Canadian retail sales rose 1.3% in January, recouping some of the previous months 1.9% decline. Market expectations had been for an increase of 0.8%.

    Earlier in the week, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz warned that the bank could have to cut rates if inflation remains low. He also warned that economic growth in the first quarter could be “on the soft side”.

    The dollar rose to its highest level against the loonie since July 2009 on Thursday, buoyed up by expectations that the Federal Reserve could hike interest rates earlier than previously thought.

    The dollar strengthened across the board Wednesday after Fed Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the bank could begin to raise interest rates about six months after its bond-buying program winds up, which is expected to happen this fall.

    The comments prompted investors to bring forward expectations for a rate hike to as soon as March of next year.

    The Fed also reduced its monthly bond purchases by an additional $10 billion to $55 billion at the conclusion of its two-day policy meeting, and said there was “underlying strength in the broader economy.”

    In the coming week, investors will be looking ahead to U.S. data from the housing sector, as well as reports on consumer confidence and durable goods. Canada is not scheduled to release any economic reports.
