Most of the other YEN pairs have recently declined strongly from earlier in the year which in varying degree are being retraced with some possibly still in progress and others might have just completed.

CADJPY             - appears to be such pair that might have completed the retracement and could be in very early stage of resumption of the down trend and potentially offer very good short entry that could turn into significant long term short and possibly very strong dynamic as it could be wave C decline from Dec             2015 high

Here is the Technical summary

(A) From Monthly chart (see chart below) we note that:
1. It topped in Dec             2017 at 125 area we had noticeable sell of creating a low in Jan 2009 at 68.5 in a zigzag decline.
2. It has been retracing since and in Dec             2014 completed 66.67% (2/3rd) which is a Gann retracement level.
3. Hit the resistance at median line of the rising pitchfork .
4. Then made initial drop again that has been retraced to just over 61.8%.

(B) In addition to Monthly we note the following from Daily chart:
1. The retracement of the Feb low at 91.70 area has been a zigzag and has retrace 61.8% of the prior decline.
2. second leg of the zigzag could be potential rising wedge which would suggest move the upside is complete or very close to completion
2. Clear price divergence with both RSI and MACD which has bearish cross over.

This setup could potential offer very profitable trade with stop just above the recent high and entry could be located using 4Hr time frame or say break below 98 as conservative entry.

Downside targets could be:
Target 1 = 85 (previous resistance that could become potential support)
Target 2 = 68 (Previous structure low of Dec             2009)
Target 3 = 52 to 50 being 127.2% extension of the move from 125.40 to 68.32

CADJPY: BOJ might help me short it

I attempted a short but didn't move as fast as I expected.

In waiting mode now.

Might have minor swing high to form on that small time frame but worth watching.

Yes, I'm watching it, no need to rush in with such a potentially large move ahead.

I think on H4 or better on Hrly, you will notice possible leading diagonal, if so then now we need abc retracement which appears to be in progress.

nice long term chart, with some serious potential! alway great to see your charts!
have been in this for a while, and while my patience has been tested (jumped the gun a bit early...), today it finally seems we are heading in the right direction.
last 4hr candles are looking good, with quite a clear break and hold below the 50 & 100 Ma's.

Thanks. If fact looking at most of the YEN pairs it seem like one is spoilt for choice. AUDJPY also looks excellent. However CADJPY I think was first of the block on this run so I focused on that.

So will be keen to follow this and could offer multiple exists and entries along the way. Enjoy the run.
