DailyFX.com - Dollar Continues to Offer Trade Setups versus Yen

Receive the Weekly Speculative Sentiment Index report via PDF via David’s e-mail distribution list.

USDJPY Retail forex traders remain heavily long the US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen, and extremely low volatility makes buying at support our preferred strategy until further notice.

Trade Implications – JPY Pairs: Last week we noted that our positioning data showed retail traders at their most net-long the Dollar versus the Japanese Yen since it bottomed at ¥98 in October. Positioning has since moderated as traders take profits on some of those long positions.

We expect that the trading crowd will continue to catch important turns as extremely low volatility favors mean-reversion trading strategies. We’re looking to buy near support near ¥100.80 and 101, while resistance is well-defined at ¥102.25 and 102.75.
