Dollar / Yen Pivot is 80
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Early March action warrants a long USDJPY position with a stop below 8000. I’ve no idea if the advance will extend from current levels but the reward/risk is favorable as the next objective isn’t until the 100% extension of the February rally from 8001 / July 2011 low at 8150. Levels above there are 8820 (former support), and finally 9500 (2011 high and 261.8% extension). A drop under 8000 would shift focus to former resistance at 7950.
Bottom Line – sideways / higher
