USDJPY – Forex trading crowds remain net-short the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) against the Japanese Yen as the pair surges to fresh multi-year highs. Two weeks ago we warned of a potential sentiment extreme and short-term USDJPY top. Yet the reversal clearly proved short-lived and a run towards ¥90 seems likely.
Trade Implications – USDJPY: One of our retail sentiment-based trading strategies most recently attempted to go short USDJPY but got stopped out at breakeven. That same system is now close to going long, and the severity of the USDJPY uptrend makes this our preferred position.
