There is still some chances that USD/JPY could weaken further in the near term, comment UOB Group’s Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang and Senior FX Strategist Peter Chia.
24-hour view: “We highlighted yesterday that the outlook is mixed and we expected USD to trade in a choppy manner between 132.30 and 134.30. We did not anticipate the sharp drop to 131.71 and the strong bounce from the low (USD closed higher by 0.24% at 133.72). The outlook remains mixed and today, we expect USD to trade in a broad range between 132.50 and 134.50.”
Next 1-3 weeks: “We continue to hold the same view as yesterday (16 Mar, spot at 133.40) where while there is scope for USD to weaken further, the major support at 131.50 is unlikely to come into view so soon. Note that USD dropped briefly to 131.71 in early NY trade before rebounding strongly. Overall, only a breach of 135.10 (no change in ‘strong resistance’) would indicate that 131.50 is not coming into view.’
