Recap

Last weeks anticipated strength of JPY converted into correctional move only in case of CAD/JPY pair. Whether other currencies will follow remains to be seen. The most likely to follow is AUD/JPY at the moment, while USD/JPY and GBP/JPY although looking overextended to the north taking short positions has to be exercised with caution in my book. Another currency that is likely to strengthen this week is EUR. ECB will have it's rates announcement on Thursday. As it stands at the moment the only outcome that could weaken EUR further would be ECB's version of QE announcement.
