Japanese Yen – Break Remains Favored
300 Minute Bars
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.” The rally from the record low is corrective and price has broken its short term trendline support. The recent spike reversed at the confluence of the former pivot and 61.8% retracement of the decline from 7785. Look lower.
Trend Strength (M,W,D) – (2), (1), 0
