USDJPY exhibits signs of a large scale trend reversal, to be initially confirmed after August's close, as long as the month ends with USDJPY trading above 102.611 on close.

We shouldn enter longs at market open, as described on the chart, risking a 1/3 of our maximum risk per trade, and adding if we get a dip to support with the same stop loss. This will keep the initial entry risk small.
After we have good progress, we can trail stops and add more to longs on further uptrend continuation setups that we might get along the way as USDJPY moves towards our targets.

Good luck!

Ivan Labrie.

Comment: Very good progress here, I'm inclined to move the stop to entry price here, to be conservative. It shouldn't really fall back below monthly support.

Comment: I reccomend to short this and EURUSD, or short EURJPY. Use a 3x the daily ATR stop.

Unless I'm trailed out at my entry price. Then I'd consider reentering if safe.

Welcome, you took the trade at the weekly open?
It's possible that the long term dollar uptrend is resuming now.

I took the trade on 8-25 at 100.455. I have been trying to decide whether to hold for the long term.

Hold then, should be good. You can keep stops under last Friday's low, or a bit lower.
