USD/JPY: Anyone watching the 115.55-116.06 area for longs?

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen

Weekly Timeframe: Current trading action shows that the USD has seen a decline in value, consequently forcing price to trade just above a major weekly swap level coming in at 115.50.

Daily Timeframe: The buyers and sellers are currently seen battling for position within a daily demand area at 115.55-116.38 (located just above the aforementioned weekly swap level). In the event that fresh buyers enter the market here, we see very little stopping price from rallying up to a minor daily swap area coming in at 117.22-117.64.

4hr Timeframe: The 4hr timeframe reveals that price is currently trading relatively deep within a 4hr demand area at 115.55-116.06 (located deep within the aforementioned daily demand area).

Under normal circumstances, we would usually enter the market here without the need for confirmation. The reason we say ‘usually’ is simply because this area of demand, even though it is beautifully located in the higher-timeframe picture, has been visited (14/ 01 /15) already, meaning demand i.e. buy orders may have already been weakened. So as things stand, we are going to be watching the lower timeframe action today within this area of 4hr demand for a confirmed entry long. Assuming we find one, we’ll be looking to target 117.00, and potentially, given enough time and effort from the buyers, the 4hr supply area above at 117.93-117.69.

Current buy/sell levels:

• Buy orders: watching for lower-timeframe confirmation within 4hr demand at 115.55-116.06 (Predicative stop-loss orders seen at: dependent on where one confirms this level).

• Sell orders: Flat (Predicative stop-loss orders seen at: N/A).
