GBPUSD has wiped out almost all of the gains it made after the Conservative Party won in the U.K.’s general election. Sterling fell for six consecutive days, the worst run in almost eight months, after data showed that Britain’s economic recovery may be faltering.
USDJPY maintained a bullish bias last week surging for six consecutive days. It is well understood internationally that Japan will make positive contributions not only to Japan’s economy but also to the global economy by ending deflation through QQE aimed at achieving a two percent inflation rate, according to BoJ’s Kuroda. 1.35bln vanilla expiries at 124.50 for todays NY cut, interbank reports suggest large option ‘knock outs’ at 125.00 which is the next bullish objective.
Traders will be unlikely to position to heavily as we start the week, we have a heavy data slate this week with ECB decision and presser on Thursday followed by Friday’s Non Farm Payrolls which will be a critical data point for those watching the data for the next phase of Dollar direction.
