Last week, Powell also mentioned in his semi-annual testimony about monetary policy before the Senate Banking Committee and the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee in the US Congress that "until confidence returns that the Corona pandemic is under control, a full recovery will not be possible" and that "the downward curve continues and with it continues Possibility of jobs falling under the risk of final loss and business closure.

Technical analysis


The dollar pair against the yen presented positive trades yesterday to make attempts to breach the 107.68 level but did not close the daily candle above it, noting that the price starts the day with a new rise to move above this level, which provides signals on the price trend to shift towards the upside, supported by moving above the EMA50 , But we notice that the stochastic is showing overbought signs to hinder positive attempts.
Consequently, we prefer stopping temporarily on the neutral until the price confirms its position in relation to the mentioned level, noting that confirming its breach will push the price for new gains reaching 109.22, while consolidation below it will press the price to resume the decline whose first target is located at 106.44.
The expected trading range for today is between 107.00 support and 108.50 resistance
Expected trend for today: neutral
