Community Forecast
khalidamassi on EUR/USD
“After strong move of EUR/USD last week to 1.17, then falling to 1.12, next week’s recovery to 1.15 is very likely as the pair closed above 1.12 for the second week, but clear break below 1.12 will dampen expected bullish view for next week.”

EUR/JPY extends decline, tests 135.00
“The ECB is really getting mixed messages -- growth is holding up quite well, the recovery story looks to be on track. However, we’ve had an increase in market turmoil, which has led to some tightening in financial conditions, and we’ve seen the slump in commodity prices that have caused a decline in inflation expectations.”
- ABN Amro Bank NV (based on Bloomberg)
The Euro remained relatively unchanged against the Japanese Yen yesterday, declining only five pips. With the new month the monthly pivot point shifted higher, leaving the EUR/JPY unsupported around 135.70.

RBA keeps rate on hold as weak Aussie and past rate cuts assist growth
The Reserve Bank of Australia kept interest rates on hold at 2% after the recent stock market turmoil as a weaker Australian Dollar and past rate cuts have a positive impact on growth. The central bank said the Australian Dollar was adjusting to the significant drops in key commodity prices. Since the August meeting, the Aussie has lost 2.5% versus the US Dollar and 1% on a trade weighted basis.
Expert Commentary
"In case the Fed will decide to act in September despite the mentioned circumstance in the market - it could deteriorate the sentiment and dampen the Japanese currency to 115."
- Osamu Takashima, Chief FX Strategist at Citibank, on Japanese Yen
As you may observe the historic data during the last two years when the Yen has found its peak, the depth of the adjustment was five figures. For instance, in January 2014, the Yen peaked at 105 levels, at the time the USD/JPY pair was put to 100 and the depth of the adjustment was five figures as well. >>
