US Dollar Outlook:

  • The US Dollarhas reversed dramatically after the January US inflation charge report (CPI), with the DXY Index engaged on a bearish outdoors engulfing bar.
  • But with Fed charge hike odds climbing alongside US Treasury yields, USD/JPY charges are nonetheless within the early phases of a bullish triangle breakout.
  • The IG Client Sentiment Index means that USD/JPY has a bullish bias within the near-term.

Jump Then Slump

It’s been a brutal few hours for the US Dollar. While the January US inflation charge report (CPI) initially helped spark the DXY Index to its highest degree in every week, sellers quickly got here in thereafter and have provoked a dramatic flip within the technical image. Instead of being on the verge of its first shut above its every day 21-EMA (one-month transferring common) for the primary time since February 1, the DXY Index is now engaged on a every day bearish outdoors engulfing bar, suggesting formidable resistance has fashioned close to 96.00.

Alas, whereas that is unhealthy information for many USD-pairs, there’s one standout for dollar bulls: USD/JPY charges. The mixture of upper US Treasury yields, increased Fed charge hike odds, and rallying oil costs is a nasty combine for the Japanese Yen, which has afforded USD/JPY charges to proceed with their bullish symmetrical triangle breakout recognized final week forward of the January US nonfarm payrolls report.

DXY PRICE INDEX TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DAILY Timeframe (February 2021 to February 2022) (CHART 1)

The DXY Index rally bumped into resistance at its every day 21-EMA in addition to the 50% retracement of the 2017 excessive/2018 low vary right this moment. With a every day bearish outdoors engulfing bar forming, the charts are telling us that 96.00 should be overtaken earlier than any broad-based bullish viewpoint is to be taken severely within the near-term. For now, rising trendline assist from the May 2021 and January 2022 swing lows is holding up for the second time this month.

While rising US Treasury yields and better Fed charge hike odds suggests {that a} dollar sell-off must be restricted, a drop beneath 95.25 warns of a fast flush to the 2022 lows are down close to 94.63 – proper close to the place the March 2020 low, September 2020 excessive, and September to early-November 2021 highs have been carved out.


US Dollar Forecast: DXY Index’s Ugly Turn After CPI; USD/JPY Triangle Breakout

In spite of the DXY Index’ latest struggles, USD/JPY charges stay resilient. Consistent with final week’s remark that “a symmetrical triangle may be forming since late-November, which in context of the preceding move, would look for resolution higher,” USD/JPY charges seem like within the early phases of their subsequent leg to the topside.

Bullish momentum has been steadily enhancing in latest periods, regardless of right this moment’s pullback from a contemporary 2022 excessive. USD/JPY charges are above their every day 5-, 8-, 13-, and 21-EMA envelope, which stays in bullish sequential order. Daily MACD is trending increased whereas above its sign line, and every day Slow Stochastics are actually in overbought territory. ‘Buy the dip’ alternatives are eyed as long as USD/JPY charges maintain above symmetrical triangle resistance (now assist), coming in close to 115.20 over the following few periods.

IG Client Sentiment Index: USD/JPY RATE Forecast (February 10, 2022) (Chart 3)

US Dollar Forecast: DXY Index’s Ugly Turn After CPI; USD/JPY Triangle Breakout

USD/JPY: Retail dealer information exhibits 28.20% of merchants are net-long with the ratio of merchants quick to lengthy at 2.55 to 1. The variety of merchants net-long is 27.64% decrease than yesterday and 18.80% decrease from final week, whereas the variety of merchants net-short is 4.81% increased than yesterday and 30.08% increased from final week.

We usually take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the actual fact merchants are net-short suggests USD/JPY costs could proceed to rise.

Traders are additional net-short than yesterday and final week, and the mix of present sentiment and up to date adjustments offers us a stronger USD/JPY-bullish contrarian buying and selling bias.
