USD/JPY: Still prefer the short-term sell-rally strategy

The market remains bullish USD/JPY and it also remains long and susceptible to short-term clean-outs on the downside. The bulls have drawn a line in the sand near 101.25 […]

USD/JPY: Plenty of dip buyers around but…..

I’m not too sure what to do with USD/JPY. Overall it looks like we are in a holding pattern somewhere between 101/105 and that we will see 110+ once […]

USD/JPY: Hard to see it breaking out of 101.50/104.50 range

Some of the JPY crosses (particularly EUR/JPY) are starting to look a bit ‘toppy’ and if the crosses turn lower then USD/JPY will also struggle to maintain any bullish […]

I haven’t been trading this pair, although I did take a small long in CAD/JPY near current levels based on the basing formation break. Buying USD/JPY near trend highs […]

USD/JPY: Testing daily highs at 103.75, stops likely through this level

I saw one of the more experienced and successful intraday traders go long this pair yesterday near 103.25 with a very reasonable target at 103.85. He obviously […]

USD/JPY: Probably another false move

  • The market remains very bullish on USD/JPY but market positioning is also still quite long;

USD/JPY: Continue to leave alone until end-of-fin-year flows are complete

Sorry, I’ve got no clues on USD/JPY.

AUD/JPY looks very bullish but resistance is pretty strong near 94.50 whilst EUR/JPY looks bearish but has solid support 140.20/40.

End-of-financial year flows in […]

USD/JPY: Try to pick the 200 pip range

The market is long and bullish which should ensure dips are well supported but rallies will attract profit takers.

Sounds to me like a good recipe for range trading and […]

USD/JPY: Market expecting semi-official bids near 101.80.
