AUD, EUR: Sovereign buying providing main support


One large regional SWF (Sovereign wealth fund) and a few Asian central banks were very active buyers of both AUD and EUR on Friday last. If this buying returns then its unlikely that the Asian trading session will fight it.

EUR/JPY: Downside risk on the day


Dealers are of the opinion that the intraday risk today for the EUR/JPY is to the downside.

European Sovereign debt issues are never far away from trader’s minds and EUR longs are always a tad nervous about new revelations. The inability of USD/JPY to rally without BoJ help is a concern for bulls in that market. Combine the two and dealers are of the opinion that the risky side today in EUR/JPY is the downside.

Intraday resistance levels are at 112.45 and 113.00 and support levels are at 111.60 and 110.65.

ForexLive Asian market open: Quiet start to interbank trading week


All of the major pairings are trading close to their NY closing levels after a fairly uneventful weekend on the news front.

USD/JPY traded all day Friday in a 15 pip range and it looks like it doesn’t want to go any higher without help from the BoJ. The AUD/USD stalled again ahead of the big option level at .8475 and from  a technical perspective, both EUR/USD and cable made disappointing closes to the week after breaking above important resistance levels.

Good luck today.
