USDJPY – Have We Hit Support?

USDJPY – Have We Hit Support?

Its been a brutal day for risk as Dow dropped -500 points and Italian political drama upended the markets, but after vicious selloff markets are due for some reprieve. With Italian story now moving off to the sidelines as the country awaits new elections in a few months, the focus shifts to US data as the markets take a look at the first key report of the week – the ADP employment release.

This week is unusual because all of the preliminary data actually follows the NFPs on Friday, so the ADP is the only clue to how strong the payrolls will be. If the job picture in the US continues to perform to expectation the 10Y yields should start to creep back towards 3.00% and USDJPY should follow in turn. The pair appears to have found some support in front of the 108.00 level and if it can hold the lows, a rally back towards 110.00 could be in store.
