CAD/JPY Reversal Approaching Initial Support - Bearish Sub-86.53

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: CADJPY reversed off a BIG resistance range last week at 87.36/43 with the decline now coming into initial support at 83.35/55. This region is defined by the 50% retracement of the February advance, the lower median-line parallel extending off the February low and a descending parallel extending off the February high. The immediate short-bias is at risk heading into this region with today’s close of added importance.

Ultimately we would be looking to sell a rebound while below key resistance & broader bearish invalidation at the 2016 high-day close / April open at 86.53. A break lower targets the 61.8% retracement at 82.39 backed by the median-line / 81.19. Critical support rests at the confluence of the January & February low-day closes at 80.61/63.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of SuccessfulTraders” series.

CAD/JPY Reversal Approaching Initial Support - Bearish Sub-86.53

Notes: The pair has been trading within the confines of a descending channel formation off the high, further highlighting initial resistance at 84.32. A breach above this level would be needed to mark a more significant recovery in the pair targeting 84.78 & 85.51- a region where we would once again be on the lookout for short-triggers.

A break below key near-term support at 83.35 keeps the short-bias in play targeting the 82.39, 81.58 and 81.19. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 30-33 pips per scalp. Added caution is warranted heading into Friday’s Canadian employment report with the release likely to fuel intraday volatility in the CAD crosses.
