USD/JPY Analysis

This pair has been very well positioned for long trades this week, as the USD has been the strongest, and the JPY the weakest, of all the non-exotic currencies.

Yesterday there was a very strong move up and we exceeded the key level of 105.00, and came within a few pips of the 6 year high at 105.43. Since then, the price has been falling this morning, more impulsively that it was rising, suggesting we are now going to get some kind of pull back.

I am not comfortable going short anywhere however, as there are no strong and obvious levels that look like they will hold.

In the very unlikely event that we get back to the area between last week’s open and this week’s open a little above the former resistance at 104.00, then this should be a great area to look for long trades.

USDJPY 9314

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today concerning either the USD or the JPY. Therefore it is likely to be a quiet day.
