For those of you who I work with on a regular basis you know how I feel about the personality of the USDJPY and how it moves and looking on the we’re currently coming out of one of those pullbacks looking to retest previous structure highs in my opinion.
The fact that we’ve come into resistance on the LTF is concerning for a buyer but I think it’s more concerning that the market hasn’t been able to move off of that level and as instead consolidated right at it. This tells me that the sellers aren’t too strong and this could be an area where the buyers are simply looking to grab some relief and involve themselves once again if the sellers can’t move this market down.
In order to trade this I’ll be looking for potential opportunities down on the 15 minute chart during today’s Live Room session. I see a potential setting up already which would do the trick, but any chance I get to buy near those lows, I’ll be looking to take.
On the fundamental side of things we have the BOJ Monetary Statement coming out tonight/tomorrow morning which may play a role for those looking to take extended targets. Syndicate members we talked about this with the GBP in last night’s video and look how that played out. So we’ll see JPY doesn’t some tricky things and is usually comes with devaluing their currency.
Good luck in the markets today traders and as always, do me a favor and hit that like button if you enjoyed this post.
