UBS FX Comment - Fed Primes Dollar For Major Rally

"1. Strong US data now will lead to sharp dollar rallies

The dollar is primed for a major rally following this month's Federal Open Market Committee meeting. The FOMC met expectations by cutting the Fed's pace of asset purchases by another $10bn to $55bn a month. But policymakers surprised on several other counts.

First, the FOMC dropped its forward guidance linking future interest rate hikes to specific levels of unemployment. The guidance had become increasingly irrelevant as…

TD Securities: Weekly Technical Outlook-USDJPY

  USDJPY rallied firmly from the 101.20 area this week but the rebound stalled right on “cloud” chart resistance. Technically, the gains look potentially bullish on the daily and weekly chart but, in both cases, these developments constitute the barest minimum in terms of bullish price signals that we could…

TD Securities: CAD Technical Outlook

USDCAD

USDCAD price action is unequivocally bullish across a range of time frames. While the hourly chart does suggest some potential for an intraday stall in rally seen over the past 24 hours, the overall impression from the short, medium and long-term charts is very constructive for the USD…

RBS:Global Currency Themes for the Week | Yellen's Future Rewrite

"Trading Summary | While the air above is thinning, we hold to our long EUR/USD tactical view. GBP/USD has more upside and this may pressure EUR/GBP lower. European currencies remain favoured over Asia FX as investors chase risk adjusted carry returns in a vol crushed world. Stay with long GBP/JPY as the BoE falls further behind in the Race Not to Tighten First. USD/CAD to trade lower initially as spot catches up with rate spreads.…

TD Securities-Weekly Technical Outlook: USDJPY

"USDJPY looked in good technical shape through the end of last week but the bind tone has quickly vanished. Losses this week have dumped the USD back below “cloud” chart support, with the confirming cross lower in the “tankan” span indicating a bias towards more weakness from here. The USD is just about holding on…

ANZ Research: USD/JPY AND GBP/JPY HAVE BROKEN THEIR NEAR TERM STRUCTURES

"The break below 101.90 broke the last (short-term) vestiges of a positive USD/JPY profile and highlighted the counter likelihood that a corrective rebound off 100.75 completed on the test of 103.75. USD/JPY, as shown in Figure 3, is now approaching rising (flag?) support at 101.40. A break of this level could trigger a swift test of 100.00 if not a measured move to 99.00-10.

A swift rebound back above 102.50 is needed to negate the current downside bias, though, as with EUR/JPY, a break…

ANZ Reaserch: JPY BITES BACK (AGAIN): EURJPY

"Sharp moves in New York hours washed out short-term positions and structures which had favoured JPY weakness.

 EUR/JPY has not triggered stops (140.10), but was the key protagonist in the moves which triggered stops in USD/JPY (101.90) and GBP/JPY (169.90).

 Broader patterns have not turned JPY positive, as yet, but have become mixed or neutral into the end of this week.

 Price action next week will be critical in determining directional bias for Q2’14.…

TD: USDCAD, EURCAD, AUDCAD, GBPCAD, CADJPY Technical Outlook

The short-term USDCAD charts are not telling us much we don’t already know. The USD remains capped below short-term resistance in the low 1.11 area and, after a firmer start to the North American session, USDCAD has slipped modestly back towards support in the upper 1.10 zone. We see limited downside for the market…

BBH MarketView: BOJ in Wait and See Mode; Here is Why

"Japan has reported some disappointing data, but the BOJ is unlikely to move when its 2-day meeting concludes on Tuesday.  Surveys suggest the expectations for additional easing have been pushed from Q2 into Q3.  This will allow officials time to assess the impact of the retail sales tax increase and the ongoing efforts to bolster inflation. …

We believe GBP/JPY has upside on the 'winners and losers in the Race Not to Tighten First' theme. USD/CAD to trade lower initially as spot catches up with rate spreads.

TD Securities: FX: CFTC Weekly Report-Week Ending Tuesday, March 4th

"IMM positioning in the major currencies was little changed in the week overall for the most part. The biggest and most obvious shift was in EUR positioning, with CTAs and speculative investors boosting net long EUR positioning ahead of the ECB meeting from the net long of +13.9k contracts in the week through February 25th to a net long of +23.4k contracts this week. That helped the implied aggregate long USD position held by the market slide to USD 11.2bn, the lowest since early…

UBS FX Morning Adviser-Majors Technical Outlook

"EURUSD BULLISH The important trendline resistance at 1.3830 held well last Friday to prompt a setback. Only a close above this level would be positive, opening 1.3893. Support is at 1.3694 ahead of 1.3643.

USDJPY BEARISH The latest weakness suggests there’s scope for further extension of the decline to break below support at 100.76 and then onto test the critical 99.97. Resistance is at 102.83.
