Forex Market: AUD/JPY daily forecast

During Friday’s trading session AUD/JPY traded within the range of 95.61-95.93 and closed at 95.67, losing 0.17% for the day.

At 8:19 GMT today AUD/JPY was gaining 0.02% for the day to trade at 95.69, which is the current daily high.

Fundamental view


The rate of unemployment in the country probably remained unchanged at 3.5% in June. It represents the percentage of the eligible work force that is unemployed, but is actively seeking employment. A person who is not classified as employed or unemployed is excluded from the statistics. People, who have been laid off and are awaiting to be hired again, are also classified as unemployed. In case the unemployment rate met expectations or even fell further, this would have a bullish effect on the yen. Japan Statistics Bureau will release the official employment data at 23:30 GMT.

Overall Household Spending in Japan probably decreased at an annualized rate of 3.8% in June, according to the median forecast by experts, following another drop by 8.0% in the prior month. Spending levels indicate how strong consumer confidence in the country is. Household Spending is also a major component of the Gross Domestic Product of the nation. In case the indicator dropped at a lesser pace than anticipated, this would provide support to demand for the national currency. The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is to publish the official report at 23:30 GMT.
