Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

PT_APR_15_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Second Half of the Week Turn Window for the Yen

The high for the year in USD/JPY was recorded back on January 2nd at 105.43. That will be 105 calendar days at the end of the week. Simple Gann analysis suggests to be on the lookout for a change in trend (or possible acceleration in trend) around this time. This is one of Gann’s simpler methods, but also one of the more compelling. The next couple of days leading into this turn window should shed some light on what will come out of it. Strength would likely set up some sort of secondary high while a move under the March lows could see a low of some importance develop.
