USDJPY: Downtrend continuation

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen
We're currently in a short position in USDJPY             , aiming to capture the resumption of the weekly downtrend in this pair.
The two targets on chart are time at mode targets obtained from the daily, but there's a possibility that USDJPY             reaches down into the 2009 monthly uptrend's mode, or most frequent price in the advance.

The uptrend from the 2009 low culminated in time near the top, and since then, USDJPY             has seen very sharp selloffs, in a volatile and tight range until it recently broke down after Japan announced the introduction of negative interest rates.
It is expected that the BOJ will intervene if USDJPY             reaches 105, which aligns with the 2nd target on chart.
That being said, the 2009 uptrend mode range is between 101.769 and 102.611, and it's implied to be reached, after the monthly uptrend expired in time.

Good luck if trading this pair.

Ivan Labrie.

Trade active
Trade closed manually: Waiting for volatility to recede. Safer to stand aside and watch for now.
Comment: We might see a rally, as price has moved above the downtrend mode.
We could see it go as high as 118.04 but there are strong resistances on the way up.
Let's wait for now, and reasess.
Comment: Took a long from 113.7 and closed at 114.245.
I see the move up has been retraced and we're trading at the mode again.
It's wiser to stand aside, or trade the range because price action isn't convingly bullish quite yet, but it isn't safe to short either.
Comment: Waiting for confirmation to long, for now I'm long GBPJPY which had a clearer setup.
Comment: After dropping to support, we saw an orderly uptrend in the daily chart, but now price turned down sharply at the level from where the last leg down took off. I'm seeing bears showing strength for some time here. Conflicts a bit with EURJPY longs, but it might be safe to be in shorts. (I'm flat at the moment)

Downtrend resuming as expected, it just took a detour, consolidating briefly.
Yes, mate. I am also looking for bearish on this pair)

Thanks, let's see how it goes...saw quite a bit of bullish posters today.
may be
I think we can see some upside, after the resistance has been broken.
The next levels are the light blue line on my chart, at 114 more or less, and then the weekly high at 114.55.
If above we can see it rally considerably.

Can you talk a little about the indicators you use here? How are the up/ down boxes formed, is this similar to Renko/ Mboxwave? Also, I noticed in a post a year or so ago you were using a variation of the Weis Wave. Is there a reason you no longer use it? Thanks!
