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.

    • Look Ahead to 08/02/23: Oil inventories; TTEF, DIS, UBER and BDEV earnings Oil, tech, and the consumer are set to dominate the markets on Wednesday, with earnings from TotalEnergies (TTEF), EIA data, and results from Walt Disney (DIS) and Uber Technologies (UBER).

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
