Factory orders in October rose 1% beating expectations for a 0.7% increase. The November ISM Services PMI rose from 54.4 to 56.5. The prices paid index fell from 70.7 to 70.
The Dollar Index (DXY) rose 0.40% after touching the 104.11 level on Monday, the lowest level since June. The more positive tone around the dollar helped push USD/JPY higher.
The pair broke above 135.50 and rose to 136.40, hitting the highest level since Thursday. It is holding near the high, with the bullish momentum intact. The next resistance zone is around 136.60, followed by 137.00.
136.00 has become immediate support, followed by 135.50/55. The recovery of the dollar is being supported by the indicators on the 4 hour chart with the RSI moving north, breaking the 30 level and the Impulse turning higher as well. Based on the indicators, more gains appear likely before a further leg down.
