Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
-The USDJPY decline from 103.37 is corrective and most of the drop has already been retraced.
-One of my favorite ‘trend extension’ setups is the construction of a 3 point triangle (contracting boundaries but with just 3 legs). A drop from before the high that finds support before 101.61 could satisfy requirements.
-A bullish objective of 105.12 is derived by calculating the measured move from the 103.37-101.61 dip. A close from Oct 2008 remains uncovered at 105.30.
Trading Strategy: Looking to re-enter longs (trailed out at 102.20 last week). 102.45/70 is estimated support.
LEVELS: 101.81 102.43 102.70 | 103.37 103.73 105.12
