On the downside, the pair is likely to find a support around 116.33, the horizontal support ahead of 116.00, a key psychological level and then 113.81, the short term support zone. A break and daily closing below the 113.81 support shall incite renewed selling interest, validating a move towards the 112.63 and 112.00 support zones.

Japan Trade Balance

Japan recorded a JPY 496.2 billion trade surplus in October of 2016, 373.5 percent higher than a JPY 104.8 billion surplus a year earlier but lower than market expectations of JPY 615 billion, according to a government report. Exports declined 10.3 percent year-on-year, 13th consecutive drop and much worse than expectations of an 8.6 percent fall. Imports shrank at a faster 16.5 percent compared to forecasts of a 16.3 percent decrease.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair on short term dips still appears to be a good strategy in near term. Alternatively, selling near 118.50 can also be a good option if we get a valid bearish reversal candle on the daily chart.
