• Running through long, medium to short-term analysis isn't just a technical method

• We focus on USDJPY and the Yen crosses as medium-term trade potential builds

Trade setups take time to develop. Analyzing and acting only after the spark ignites the setup leads to false starts, bad entries and missed opportunities. Running a multiple time frame analysis on a currency, a pair or even a broader market can help us better identify and prepare for an opportunity before it unfolds. From a technical perspective, that means starting with a bird's eye view of the charts and zooming in. But this isn't just a technical analysis technique. We go through multiple time frame analysis with a focus on USDJPY and the yen crosses in today's Strategy Video.
