Happy Monday and first trading day of June!

Another beautiful day in New York and the pick of the day is... [drum roll]

Japanese Yen vs. US dollar or as we call it here at Invest Diva, Mr. Japanese yen and Ms. USA as they dance on the forex dance floor. We claimed last week that the pair has been pretty clueless, and just to prove us wrong, it kick started the weekend with a high jump on Monday.

It seems like the 50% Fibonacci level held the pair from going further down but the pair remains below the Ichimoku cloud, within a falling wedge. We are still awaiting the confirmation of the falling wedge as a continuation pattern to take us back to our previously set targets at 104 and 105. Alternatively a break below 100.3 could change our outlook to bearish with 97.7 and 96  as targets.

 Hot Economic Events Recap

The first morning of June kicks of with hot and fresh data from Europe and the U.K., sparking opportunities for forex traders to start the week right.

Mr. Euro’s reaction to the mostly weaker-than-expected manufacturing PMI numbers from Europe started the dance moves in the London session dance floor. Even the better-than-expected read from France (49.6 vs. 49.3 forecast) was no help as it continues to show contractionary conditions. Switzerland also showed a weaker-than-forecast number (52.5 vs. 55.5 forecast but still expansionary), while the U.K. printed inline numbers.  The reactions were pretty negative for both Mr. Euro and Mr. Swiss France, but we’re seeing the down moves being faded at the moment to bring’em back to near breakeven.
