USD/JPY, Daily Chart with ATR

USD/JPY Pending Bearish Breakout

(Created Using IG Charts)

The USD/JPY has declined as much as 525 pips from the standing May 2017 high at 114.28. Currently the pair is retracing from its lows to now test a value of trendline resistance. If prices again resume trending lower, traders may plan for a new USD/JPY breakout under the current June 2017 low at 109.11. Traders should note that daily ATR for the USD/JPY stands at 79 pips. This means a 2X ATR profit target may be considered near 107.53. Alternatively, in the event of a false breakout, a 1X ATR stop loss may be considered near 109.90 to create an initial 1:2 risk/reward ratio.

Traders should note that IG client sentiment is currently reads at +1.68. This reading shows that 63% of traders are currently net-long the USD/JPY. When read as a contrarian signal, sentiment numbers may suggest that the USD/JPY may trend lower. In the event of a bearish breakout, traders should look for sentiment figures to reach positive extremes of +2.0 or more. In the event of a bullish reversal, sentiment values may neutralize or even flip negative. In this alternative scenario, traders may consider deleting any pending orders to sell the market.
