USDJPY Retail forex traders are now net-short the US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen for the first time in four months; we’ll continue to watch for USDJPY gains until sentiment shifts.

Trade Implications – JPY Pairs: The trading crowd last turned short as the pair crossed above the ¥104 mark and quickly reversed. We could obviously see a similar ‘fake-out’ if the Dollar fails to hold gains, but as long as retail traders remain short we’ll watch for continued USDJPY strength.
