AUDJPY: Short at linear regression channel top

FX:AUDJPY   Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen
544 53 18
Downtrend continuation confirmed, bearish flag breakout is in effect.
Relative strength tells me it's the perfect time to enter short with a tight stop.
Two possible entries, one under the low, and one at a possible retracement.
1.25% risk each, good luck!
:D Welcome to the short xxxJPY club!!

JPY could be the safe haven @justatrader :-)

Massive move in equities. I closed out on FTSE short yesterday (early in the day) and ended watching price fall like a rock :(
Nice move today in GBPJPY though, seemed bullish for the most part which was frustrating but eventually gave way. But I think this decline will be short lived. Expecting some kind of Yen weakness sooner or later, something to be careful about.

Plenty of pips to be had...yen strength has a long way to go.

Really? I have a rather modest TP in CADJPY and GBPJPY... Might give it a go letting the partial trade run its course at BE. Who knows!! I thought Yen's seasonal strength was only in Feb?

Saw the Nikkei chart?
Relative strength tells me it'll get stronger than even usd soon. I'll follow this path until proven wrong. That's how I normally do it. Same with euro, was a strong run. I got out last night, might have jumped the gun, but well. I'll continue to sell rallies.

EU could bounce or just free fall.

My audjpy limit sell wasn't triggered by 1 pip man...same thing happened with eurusd yesterday. I think my broker's playing with me.

Price proceeds to move in my expected direction afterwards...I'm never not leaving a sell stop under the low in cases like these again.

That sucks... Maybe it has to do with the spread widening? Besides you still have a lot of room to the downside, so i'm assuming you jumped in at market/

I had a limit sell trying to capture a retracement, a couple days ago. Retraced as expected, missed by one pip then down.
My rules make me pick that level, always, part of the strategy. No problem, if I know price will move fast, I leave a sell stop under the recent low and use the same stop as I would for the retracement fill.
Works very well if I'm sure about getting involved in a trend.

Second bearish candle close or low (in the second triangle) might offer some support, would be a good spot to book some profits and adjust stops

I'm patient...once the highest low is breached down, it'll go free fall on us.

Probably time to scale in or average down the entry.

Violent up bar...seems like we're out.
I'll wait to re-enter, I still think this pair is headed down.

come out to flush stop loss?

I'm 95% sure that's the case.
The way the weekly bar closes will tell us what we need to know...that we already suspect.

Highly suspect that is the case:

I could re enter now, seems like the day will close like a pin bar.

If it works, it's a great risk/reward:

same here.. exited some late short entries earlier today and re entered new shorts again. Is it normal or weird that the Yen crosses are rallying from late Asian to European and then falling from US session onwards? observing this trend for the past 2 days.

Means bigger money is long Yen...

could you elaborate or point to some more info on this? Don't quite see the relationship.

What sessions have the highest volume/liquidity?

jangseohee IvanLabrie
US > Europe > Asia Pacific
Reply
IvanLabrie PRO jangseohee
Right!
So, bigger players operate during the US/Euro overlap.

aaahhhhh.... that way. Hmm.. Interesting!!

fellow mates,
yes, the strength in AUD is due to MACD bullish divergence in black
though not confirm yet, i thought i see a hidden bearish divergence, as this is the downtrend
(price making lower high, MACD making higher higher) in orange

Flat correction almost complete, or complete...

Almost...now it does look complete.
1h bar took the highest low, 5m looks like an ending diagonal conclusion to that wave C.
Reply
if the current bar close big, then hidden divergence could have started

Yen in general started retracing, and 'positive' news came out for the Aussie dollar...not really positive, but seems like it was a good excuse to go up to run my stop.
I move on, and wait for a good setup, this isn't one right now.

Tuesday maybe with the BoJ statement. Expecting to hold on to qe. Could be Yen positive.
