Forex. Currency pair EUR USD forecast for today EUR / USD 14.10.2016
On the eve of the dollar index USDX basket dipped by 0.4%, but the overall upward trend is still relevant, and I assume that this movement is a correction, not a reversal.
Today, in my opinion, will have a strong support to the dollar against the backdrop of statistics from the United States, the report on retail sales may please investors strong data on the background of growth in consumer activity according to the Michigan Institute and CB. It should also be noted that in September, by 4.4% m / m increased sales of cars, and this component accounts for about 25% retail sales. The release of the Producer Price Index can also make a pleasant surprise on the background of rising commodity prices. In this connection, we can expect an expansion of the differential yields on 10-year US and German government bonds, which will increase demand for the dollar.

Forex. Currency pair yen dollar forecast for today USD / JPY 14.10.2016
The yield on US Treasury bonds begins adjusted downwards, which is a negative factor for the pair. However, I think that this is a temporary trend, as investors have no choice as to buy the pair on pullbacks. Speakers at this week Fed officials spoke of the inevitability of tighter monetary policy in the current year. Despite the fact that the yield spread on 10-year US government bonds and on the eve of Japan decreased, but still remain in the five-month high, which implies a growth of quotations from current levels at 300-400 points.
USD / JPY recommendations: a pair Dollar Yen Investors should buy the pair Buy's reduction of quotations to 103.60 / 103.35 and take profit at the level of 104.35.
