Short

Yen Strength 7/16/14

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen
The Yen has been building in strength through the summer. Here price has entered in to a small range(within a larger downtrend), with price being rejected at the .618 fib retracement and the resistance line, which created a confluence of resistance. Recent candle wicks show rejection at the 101.800 level, so I suspect this retracement may becoming to an end.

entry point should be approx. 101.800 area with a stop set in the 102.000 area. This stop placement was chosen since it has been a place of support and resistance in the past, and congestion seems to form there. Take profit would be fluid, evaluate PA and ride the trend down. (monitor the news as BOJ is known to intervene as their currency strengthens)
It was rejected on 1 candle. How valid is that for a rejection?

I count 3 bearish candles, plus a bullish candle with a strong rejection. As well one candle in a tight area like that. Lots of sellers. rejection with one candle = pin bars.

And if it was rejected, how would I expect to get a short order in at a higher value?

Called a pullback

But if it did pullback to 101.800, wouldn't it be a higher high invalidating that a top was in?
Reply

my idea would be invalid if the larger downtrend is broken. The idea was to get in on this downtrend. I might not have been that clear.

watching this area too, sell stops sitting at that retracement. Dollar hitting resistance too on weekly

What do you mean a second hit? What if it it hit's and breaks?

then i get stopped out for a small loss and try again at the next higher level. it will likely retest that fib level again

I think NIKKEI should break high later tonight and if everything works out, it should take USDJPY with it.

That 101.840 area has a lot of congestion Which hopefully works in our favor. good luck

I just read that, geo-politically this cannot be good. I suppose it's going to be risk off for the next few days.

on the 2 hr chart the median line on the pitchfork is 101.10 area that was from the high of your fib level. so far pitchfork working
Reply
matt_forex paulyberndt
I never used the pitchfork, but read up on it and applied it to the chart. It is following it quite well. What is your 1st profit target?

101.04 area to retest the swing low from July 3
