USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)

USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

Bank of Japan kept the base rate at close to zero level, with the support of the current stimulus package. This fact is not so surprising as Kuroda said that their decision was made just a month ago.

The amazing thing is that this time, no members of the Bank did not vote for the growth. If speculators do not believe Kuroda, then they will have to accept that in this quarter, the Bank of Japan is indeed set an incentive and perhaps even to the end of the year.

USD/JPY is above the Kijun-Sen and Tenkan-Sen, Kijun-Sen line is directed down, the Cloud is neutral.

Bollinger bands are narrowing, the middle line is directed downwards.
