Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views
28 Mar 2017 02:00GMT
USD/JPY - 110.60.. The greenback finally gained respite in Asia after hitting a fresh 4-month trough of 110.11 at New York open yesterday, however, broad-based rebound in the USD after U.S. financial markets closed little changed triggered short covering, the pair rebounded to 110.68 and then climbing to intra-day high of 110.83 shortly after Tokyo open as the Nikkie gained over 1%.
Looks like Monday's 110.11 low would hold from here and yield consolidation with mild upside bias, so for intra-day trade, buying dlr on dips is favoured after early currency comments by FinMin Ishihara (the first by a Japanese official in several weeks).
Bids are noted at 110.50-40 n more below with stops reported below 110.00.
Offers are tipped at 110.80/90 with some stops above 111.00.
