USD/JPY has been mired in a bit of a retracement over the past five trading days, and this has brought price action down to the confluent zone of support between ¥111.61-112.40. We had looked at this zone of support on Monday of this week, and within this zone are three Fibonacci retracement levels, combined with a trend-line projection.

Chart prepared by James Stanley

This opens the door for bullish-continuation plays, with stops placed below this confluent zone of support, and targets directed towards prior points of interest.

Stops are set to 111.30 to take on approximately 100 pips of risk; and targets are set to 113.50, 114.25 and 114.95. The stop will be adjusted to break-even after the first target.
