Barclays Capital comments on USD/JPY

Analysts at Barclays Capital note that at the beginning of today’s trading day the greenback managed to rise to 78.05 regaining the grounds lost on Friday but then was stopped by the resistance and returned down to the 77 yen area.

The specialists believe that the 78.05 level will now represent the key obstacle for USD/JPY. As long as the pair is trading lower, it risks falling to the record minimum at 76.25 hit on March 16. If US dollar closed higher, it will be able to rise to 79.35/60. According to Barclays, the first scenario seems to be more possible.
