FOREXAnalysis: Since Wednesday night’s Tokyo low, the USDJPY has formed a triangle. Triangles often occur in the 4th wave position. Near term implications are for a break to new lows before a partial recovery of the decline from 101.53. A new low would satisfy minimum expectations for wave 5 but the USDJPY tends to overshoot. A specific level of interest is 96.85, which is where the break from the triangle would travel the widest part of the triangle (98.23-(99.62-98.23)). This is also near the 61.8% retracement of the advance from 93.78. Trading above 99.62 would negate the triangle idea.

FOREXTrading Strategy: Flat

LEVELS: 95.35 97.48 98.54 100.32 100.97 101.52
