Earlier today, Bank of Japan board member Hitoshi Suzuki commented that there remains no need for further ease in the monetary policy to dodge recession fears. Suzuki mentioned that any more lowering of the borrowing would significantly hurt the overall consumer sentiment.

“If the BOJ were to consider and implement specific monetary easing measures, it would take action deemed appropriate at the time while weighing the benefits and demerits of each step,” Suzuki said in a speech to business leaders in Kumamoto, southern Japan.

After bouncing off from the underlying red Ichimoku Clouds on August 23, the US Dollar Index continued to uphold the previously accumulated gains. On the backing of US Q2 GDP that came in-line with the forecasts, the bulls were testing the 98.57 resistance handle today. Anyhow, the efforts went in vain, and the daily volatility of the Greenback remained capped under the aforementioned resistance mark. Quite remarkably, the US Dollar Index had already breached above the sturdy 98.37 resistance mark, generating hopes for a consistent future uptrend. Notably, the Stochastics technical indicator was revealing overbought signs which could have played its role in dragging down the Index.

Though the Cable has had the underlying Parabolic SAR to cheer up the bulls, the pair remained far below the overhead red Ichimoku Clouds.
