USD/JPY Price Analysis: Rebound to Offer Opportunity

USD/JPY Price Analysis: Rebound to Offer Opportunity

Michael Boutros, Strategist

USD/JPY rebounded off downtrend structural support last week with the immediate focus now on the near-term advance. IF the broader trend is to remains intact, this rally should reach exhaustion relatively soon.

Technical Outlook: Last week we highlighted that USD/JPY was approaching key support at, “the 61.8% retracement of the 2016 advance at 106.38. Note that a sliding parallel of the dominant slope caught the lows today and may offer a reprieve near-termFrom a trading standpoint, this support zone could interrupt things a bit but look to fade strength sub-107.84.” Price registered a low precisely at the May low at 105.55 before rebounding sharply into the close of the week.

Notes: A closer look at USD/JPY price action sees the pair approaching initial resistance at 107.45/50 with our near-term bearish invalidation steady at the median—line / 107.84. Interim support is eyed at 106.80 with a break below 106.33 risking a drop towards the lower parallel / 105.55- a break there would suggest a much more significant breakdown is underway with such a scenario targeting 104.32 & 103.48.

Bottom line: the immediate focus is on possible exhaustion on this rebound with the broader risk still lower sub-107.84. From a trading standpoint, I’m looking to fade a leg higher in price ultimately looking for a test of the lows / structural support (IF reached would be an area of interest for exhaustion / long-entries).

USD/JPY IG Client Sentiment

USD/JPY IG Client Sentiment
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long USD/JPY- the ratio stands at +3.15 (75.9% of traders are long) – bearishreading
  • Traders remained net-long since Dec 29th; price has moved 5.2% lower since then
  • Long positions are 0.5% lower than yesterday and 9.2% higher from last week
  • Short positions are1.0% lower than yesterday and 4.8% lower from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USDJPY prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a stronger USDJPY-bearish contrarian trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
