Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

USD/JPY found support at the beginning of the month near the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high in the 101.35 area. The recovery that has followed has been steady but has made little real upside progress as the exchange rate remains in the middle of its 3-month range. Interestingly despite this lack of progress on the upside, sentiment towards the Yen has fallen dramatically with the Daily Sentiment Index (DSI) touching just 13% bulls on Monday. Usually such extremes in sentiment are witnessed after powerful trends not minor recoveries like we have seen in USD/JPY over the past few weeks. Such conviction suggests to us that USD/JPY is vulnerable to a downside break in May. The first half of next week looks significant from a cyclical perspective and a high in USD/JPY is favored around this time.
