EURJPY - Ending wedge offers a downside bias


Recommended Posts



I am not a great fan of trading non-farm payrolls. I sometimes find you have the correct view, only to be ‘spiked out ‘of your trades on the initial move. This results in me having a far more flexible stop policy, something that goes my system (normally stop above or below trigger candles).


 I also ‘think’ that we will see a move lower in JPY crosses.  More in EURJPY and GBPJPY than USDJPY as EURUSD and GBPUSD both have limited upsides. Taken a very small short in EURJPY. It is only half a signal (two out of three of my set parameters)  


Monthly: Trend of lower highs comes in at 140.00. The most important factor here is the congestion zone all the back from 2003


Weekly: Traded to the highest level in 128 weeks. We have broken through the Fibonacci congestion zone. A weekly close to current levels will post a bullish outside week and lead to further buying. However, we are yet to close!!!


Intraday (two-hours) – The most important timeframe in this outlook:

  1. Close to a correction and exhaustion count (DeMARK)
  2. Ending wedge. Measured move 135.22
  3. Bearish outside candle on the one-hour chart.

You have doing chart analysis with all these chart patterns etc.Most of this works only 30% of the time.If you would like to improve  your signals, I suggest you make the following additions to your analysis.


1)Add fundamental drivers  like interest rates expectations

2)Add correlated indices analysis because all indices are related,  if calling on ftse look at others like S and P, Nasdaq Dow and Dax 

3)Look at correlated pairs  like strength on eur /usd. usd jpy and also compare instrument strength like eurusd/eurgbp/eurjpy/eur cad  for eur strength, for usdjpy  see dollar USDJPY, cad CADJPY  , euro EURJPY and cable  GBPJPY. See link below to see how I trade Eurjpy

4)Give trade able option ideas like I have done  in some of the links below.

5)Keep to a few quality signals , otherwise you get a reputation


This is how to trade Eurjpy




Keep your t/a simple  K I S S Keep your trading so simple

When was the trade triggered , what was stop , where are actual entry and exit  levels posted , There was a trade at 19.00 at 136.23 .That trade went 200 pips , 


A full trade should have been triggered yesterday evening, because yen gets stronger in crisis .I actually traded it and made money.There were technical set ups on usd jpy, eur/usd and eur jpy.

I can note that you only comment on the trades that we ‘don’t trigger’ or are wrong and never ON the profitable ideas. 


If you want to continue to ‘troll’ our trade views feel free. It is your energy you are expelling. We will no longer be commenting to your replies

    • Hey fellow traders! I wanted to share my excitement about the recent upward momentum in the AUD/USD pair and discuss our potential strategy moving forward. Despite some challenges faced by the pair, such as difficulties in maintaining its rally above 0.6680, there are promising factors to consider. Firstly, the unexpected interest rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has triggered this impressive rally. Governor Philip Lowe's decision to raise the Official Cash Rate (OCR) by 25 basis points to 4.10% demonstrates the RBA's confidence in the Australian economy, despite lower-than-desired inflation levels. Moreover, the narrowing policy divergence between the RBA and the Federal Reserve (Fed) has provided further support. While uncertainties surrounding the June monetary policy meeting by the Fed have influenced market sentiment, the AUD/USD pair remains resilient. Another interesting development is the AUD/USD's sharp recovery, defying the breakdown from its consolidation range of 0.6563-0.6808 on a daily basis. Surprisingly, the Australian dollar has experienced minimal selling pressure, contributing to this notable rebound. As we navigate these exciting market dynamics, I believe a trend-following strategy could be advantageous in capitalizing on the upward movement. Let's stay vigilant and capitalize on the opportunities presented by this bullish momentum. Happy trading, everyone!

    • The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has sued cryptocurrency platform Coinbase the second lawsuit in two days against a major crypto exchange.  Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Wednesday 07 June 2023  IGTV’s Angeline Ong takes a look at the differences between the SEC’s crackdown on Binance and Coinbase, and why this could be a gamechanger for the crypto industry. (Video Transcript) SEC cracks down on cryptos The crypto crackdown is escalating as the SEC has issued a lawsuit against Coinbase, the second in two days against a major crypto exchange. Now on Monday, the SEC targeted Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange. The two cases are of a different nature though with the SEC accusing Binance and its CEO, Chang Ping Tao of operating a "web of deception", while with Coinbase, the regulator considers it is operating illegally because it failed to register as an exchange. Now, if successful, these lawsuits could trigger a major change in the crypto world, asserting the SEC's jurisdiction over it. So far, the industry's argument is that tokens do not constitute securities and should not be regulated by the SEC.
