Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: The 119.60 Level Looks Critical For USD/JPY

USD/JPY is undergoing its biggest correction since the BOJ announced its umpteenth version of quantitative easing in October. The exchange rate is now over off over two big figures from the multi-year high recorded yesterday and more importantly tested a key pivot around 119.60 earlier this morning. The 119.60 level is important for us as it marks the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high. Our general rule of thumb in strong trends like the one we have seen in USD/JPY over the past few weeks is to give the benefit of the doubt to the prevailing trend as long as spot remains above the 2nd square root relationship. This has served us well so far and kept us from getting negative too early – despite our inclination to do so with sentiment at positive extremes (some might say euphoric) never seen before on some metrics. Our analysis of cycles and other timing techniques suggests this could be the start of a more tumultuous month for USD/JPY, but we need to see 119.60 break convincingly to get me excited about this scenario. Until then we remain begrudgingly bullish.
