Dukascopy Technical Analysis

EUR/JPY in tight range between 121.00 and 122.00
"Dips lower will find initial support at 118.45/21st July 2016 high. the 200 day ma also is found here at 118.54 and while above here it is immediately bid."
- Commerzbank (based on FXStreet)

As was expected, the Euro experienced some issues on Thursday and, as a result, was unable to retake the 122.00 level. Even though trade closed in the green zone yesterday, the single currency is unlikely to be as lucky today, still facing a strong resistance cluster around 122.00, formed by the weekly R2, the Bollinger band and the 'Brexit' high.
Dukascopy Fundamental Analysis
UK manufacturing PMI falls to 53.4 but shows relatively confident sector ahead of leaving EU
Confidence in the UK’s manufacturing sector posted a surprise fall in November, as the weak pound exerted pressure on manufacturers buying materials from abroad. The manufacturing purchasing managers’ index fell to 53.4, down 0.8 points since last month, although rates of expansion are still "solid", according to survey compiler IHS Markit. This was the second month of decline in confidence in UK manufacturing, although PMI remained well above the neutral 50 point, indicating that sentiment is still broadly positive.

Expert Commentary
"I believe that it will not have any impact on the widely anticipated rate hike by the US Central bank."
- Robert Martin, US economist at Barclays Capital Inc., on US election outcome
At Barclays, we continue to expect the Federal Reserve to raise rates in December this year. In our view, the cumulative progress in the US economy is more than sufficient to offset any even potential risks from the outcome of the election. >>
