USDJPY


Recommended Posts

That's interesting, can you explain?

I saw this from Reuters and don't understand. 

Quote

USD/JPY's "bear trap" below the major 109.23 Fibo, a 38.2% retrace of the 104.10 to 112.40 2019 rise, increases the odds of a bigger recovery occurring.

In all honesty trading on weekly and monthly charts is best left to hedge fund managers. 

On the H4 you've got 3 x failures at 110.030 then a failure at the pivot, I'd be looking lower rather than higher at least until there was a breakout past such strong resistance.

Joshua Mahoney said something similar this morning and was looking at 30 minute charts in FX pairs.

I don't have a lot of confidence in trading in short-term time frames and there are a lot of 'sharks' pushing day trading stuff.

And yes longer range stuff is better for hedge fund managers with deep pockets.

So ... I would probably be better off doing something else.  😁

The H4 chart is quite a good one for medium term trades lasting 2 or 3 days so not really day trading and the stops are not so big as to be weighing too heavily on the account.

Not sure who these 'sharks' are what you mention, of far greater concern to you should be all the bs'ers.

You're quite right. :D

I'm going to practice this approach and go for it.

Interesting development, usdjpy broke key resistance that's been in place since early May on this 4th attempt.

Why did that happen? There was a surge in US indices on the US open so money came out of ultra safe Yen and went into stocks.

Not a totally convincing break though because come end of day some decided to reduce risk for the weekend and sent money back the other way but the dollar bulls did manage to keep the close above the break.

So what happens now? That will depend on whether there are any developments in the trade war, a worsening situation will send price back down but if there's no bad news big traders are expecting price to keep rising.

How do you know that? Because the big traders wouldn't have bothered to push price though resistance in the first place otherwise 🙄

So what do I do now? Well personally I'd be refreshing my memory of Cred's 'Entry Triggers' video I remember seeing in the 'Technical Analysis' thread.

    • AUD/USD appears vulnerable as the US dollar remains strong; the move lower arrives just before a crucial RBA meeting that could add volatility and if bearish momentum continues to unfold, how low will AUD/USD go? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Shares AUD/USD Market sentiment Price Investment   The Australian dollar made a two-year low to end last week as bearish momentum appeared to pick up steam. A bearish triple moving average (TMA) formation requires the price to be below the short term simple moving average (SMA), the latter to be below the medium term SMA and the medium term SMA to be below the long term SMA. All SMAs also need to have a negative gradient. Looking at the 10-, 21-, 55-, 100- and 200-day SMAs, AUD/USD met the criteria for a bearish TMA in the middle of June. It may signal that bearish momentum could continue to evolve. If the price moves back above the 10-day SMA, the TMA will no longer be valid. Support may lie at Friday’s low of 0.6764. The previous lows 0.6829 and 0.6850 might offer break point resistance. The RBA monetary policy committee meeting on Tuesday might provide event risk volatility opportunities. The market is anticipating a 50 basis points (bps) hike and anything other than that could see a significant move. If they hike by less than 50 bps it could see the support levels tested and a break below them might see a continued run lower. Conversely, a hike by more than 50 bps might see resistance levels challenged and if they are overcome, we may have seen the low for the medium-term last week. AUD/USD daily chart Source: TradingView AUD/USD weekly chart Last week’s push lower stopped just above the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level at 0.6758 to make a low of 0.6764. This Fibonacci level may continue to provide support. The bigger picture highlights that since the February 2021 peak of 0.8007, the price has made lower highs and lower lows, revealing descending trend lines above and below the price. The lower trend line that currently dissects the price at 0.6748 is under threat and a break there could indicate further bearishness is unfolding.

    • Golden Finance reports that BTC is approaching a "very favorable risk-reward price area" according to crypto analyst Rekt Capital on social media, who believes "BTC will be different in this cycle as its price has recently been hovering below its 200-week moving average (MA), a bottoming indicator that could face sell-side exhaustion. BTC is reaching historically oversold levels, and this extreme oversoldness will coincide with investment opportunities."
