Japanese Yen Bollinger Band Break is a Fake
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The USDJPY daily Bollinger bands are extremely tight, which warns of a breakout. When the bands are this tight, the initial breakout is often of the false variety. In this case, the break above the second standard deviation band qualifies as the false breakout. With price reversing from the recent high, respect the potential for a downside break.
