BOJ may keep on stimulating into 2014

The overnight Asian session started great, with investor optimism that the Bank of Japan would keep its monetary stimulus, even with the FOMC potentially starting to ease back on their own stimulus program. Trade data released recently has Japan posting a •1.29tn trade deficit for the month of November, the widest deficit since January of this year as inflated energy costs due to a weaker yen buoyed the y/o/y increase in the value of imports. A weakening yen will help support Japanís export focused economy, but it also increases the value of imported energy costs, and unless Japan can turn around its nuclear program, any further downward pressure on the yen is unlikely to materially impact the trade deficit unless global growth suddenly picks up. The Nikkei ended is session higher by 2.02%, while USDJPY makes an assault on the 103 handle midway through European trade.

The Fed taper is a now only a matter of time, but will it boost the dollar?

The economic and political hurdles to the US Federal Reserve to taper their bond purchases are steadily being removed so that it is almost a dead certainty Ė but donít expect it to necessarily spur a USD rally, at the very least not yet.

On the economic front the surprisingly strong US jobs numbers the other day and positive revisions to GDP are powerful incentives to get started reining in the Fedís $85 billion a month bond purchasing programme.

EUR/USD heading to multi year highs

EUR/USD has just reached and surpassed its previous resistance target at 1.3700, establishing a new 5-week high. This advance comes after a whole month of bullish price action as the EUR rose steadily from its 1.3300 support level against the USD in early November, which was the low of the last major downside correction.

The EUR now has a clear upside potential towards the 1.3830 are, which was last reached in late October. Any further breakout above that level would confirm a bullish trend, with a further upside objective at the 1.4000 level. As the pair is currently showing substantially overbought indications, however, another pullback is potentially due. Key downside support on this potential pullback within the current bullish trend tentatively resides around the 1.3600 level.
