USDJPY Fails First Test of 20 Day Average and Trendline
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The US 10 year made a new high Monday to create divergence with the Yen. This was the trigger I was waiting for. Despite equities appearing vulnerable, reward/risk justifies longs here. It may take several attempts to align with the longer term USDJPY bull trend and price still faces resistance from a trendline and 20 day average. Exceeding 8185 would inspire confidence in the upside.
Bottom Line (next 5 days) – sideways/higher?
