Forex Trade Ideas: Waiting for USDJPY Correction

Forex Trade Ideas: Waiting for USDJPY Correction

David Rodriguez, Head of Product

I remain short the Japanese Yen, but the risk of real correction suggests that adding to the position or opening fresh longs will have to wait.

I think there's plenty reason to watch for more Japanese Yen weakness, but sentiment is so incredibly one-sided at the moment that I think a correction is quite likely.

Not one to go against my longer-term bias, I won't close my existing long and instead trail my stop to previous critical resistance at 84.15. If we see the USDJPY show signs of basing once more, I will look for a fresh long position.
