USD/JPY Dip for the Fourth Straight Day, Gets Support Above 114.10

The USD/JPY trading pair fell further during Wednesday’s trading session for the fourth straight day. The support to save it from further slide came at 114.14 following the publication of the US ADP Employment report during the day. The pair was trading between the range of 114.20 and 114.45 during the American session today to rally on its daily losses altogether.

This USD/JPY dwindle occurs concurrently with the DXY continuous correction downwards as the US yields also continue to be range-bound. The Dollar Index had fallen by 0.23% to reach 95.82, which is its poorest position in about 2 weeks before it bounced back over 96.00. The 10-year yield remains at 1.77%, being down by 1.05% for Wednesday’s trading.

 The Japanese Yen is giving multiple results across various platforms. The better risk sentiments weighed on the Yen. The poorer-than-imagined economic figures from the US market did nothing to improve the position of the Yen upward. 

There was a decline in the private sector payroll of 301,000 as opposed to the expected 200,000 increments, according to the US ADP statement that was released on Wednesday. More focus will now be turned on the Non-Farm Payrolls expected to come in on Friday.

Serious Obstacles Upfront 

There is still a strong negative bias towards the USD/JPY pair in the market. It looks like the Japanese Yen has got to a heavy barrier over 114.00/10. Analysts said that a break beneath that area should make way for the testing of 113.45.

On the bright side, the instant resistance is observed at 114.45, coming closely behind it are 114.60 and 114.95. Daily closing back over 115.00 will take off the bearish push.

Other Pairs

Whereas the GBP/USD pair, on the other hand, had tried to continue on the path of recovering from last week’s losses, and it has gone over 1.3500. In spite of the fact that it has maintained itself on an upward trajectory early on Wednesday’s trading, some financial analysts say it may be hard for it to keep pulling huge investments without tackling the main resistance level that seems to have grown at 1.3560.

In the European market, too, there was good news as the Risk Reversal (RR) in the course of January for the EUR/USD trading pair was able to gain its highest rise since November 26th, 2021, as reported by the options market data.
