Rate scores new high overnight into early New York but sellers take a stand; likely stops building in size over the 1.3520/30 area. Firm NY open likely to attract offers if US data is USD-supportive. Close at 1.3380 area last week makes a seven week high close and argues for more upside coming but a correction is likely.
Likely bulls will lighten up. OK to buy a dip on a test of 1.3080 area near-term; dips likely to be bought hard now that sellers couldn't make a stand over 1.3000 with confidence on the three tries last week. Support also from cross-spreaders as they unwind Yen.
Rate is an absolute screaming buy in my view-I can't see further weakness being ignored by the buyers.
