USDJPY Technical Analysis

The USDJPY currency pair has been sold from the levels stated in last Friday's technical analysis. The ascending trend line is still intact, so the price might still be bought on dips. Traders should pay special attention today, as it is the most important day for the USD crosses. Later today, the FOMC will release a statement with a Federal Funds Rate decision, who are expected to hike the rate to 2.25 %.

The FOMC usually changes the statement slightly at each release. It's these changes that traders should look at, as they overshadow the actual fund rate decision, which is usually priced in the markets. The FOMC Statement contains the outcome of their vote on interest rates and other policy measures, along with commentary about the economic conditions that influenced their votes. Additionally it discusses the economic outlook and offers clues on the outcome of future votes. Don't forget to check our Forex calendar for all the economic announcements, forecasts, and regular updates in relation to currencies.

Technically, the USD/JPY has formed an ascending trend line right at the S1 and PP Admiral pivot points. Rejections from 112.70-80 are possible as long as the trend line holds. Targets are 113.00, with 113.55 as the final target. A drop below the weekly Admiral Pivot - 112.35 should aim for 112.05 and 111.83. The price should be very volatile in this pair, so be careful and follow the price action as usual.
