USDJPY: Staying Long as Sideways Trade Persists
Strategy: Long at 78.96, Targeting 80.38
Floating Profit / Loss: +27 pips
We entered long USDJPY at 78.96 and revised our stop-loss to the breakeven level after prices hit the first objective at 79.69. The pair briefly nudged our second target at 80.38 and reversed lower to settle in a narrow range. We will continue to hold long, looking for upward resumption to bring the pair higher once again. As before, the stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close below 78.96.
