Forex Analysis: Trade Update on USDJPY
As I wrote last week, I think the USDJPY has set a long-term bottom and may continue higher through the foreseeable future. A key point of contention for forex traders is whether or not US Treasury Yields have similarly bottomed, and it will be critical to watch US Dollar trading conditions in the week ahead.
I'll remain long USDJPY until further notice, but I’ll close half of the position if we trade below key short-term support at ¥79.00.
