-Last Wednesday, USDJPY held a trendline confluence from the lines that extend off of the August lows and former resistance line off of the May and July highs. The quick reversal bodes well for bulls.
-Thursday’s USDJPY decline was accompanied by strong volume (95th percentile measured over 20 days for CME volume).
-21, 63, and 126 (1, 3 and 6 month) averages are bunched together. This condition indicates a ‘coiled’ market seen often prior to trend moves.
-A complex inverse head and shoulders may be underway, which portends a significant advance (if confirmed on a breakout).
Trading Strategy: Long a bit against 97.75. The 61.8% retracement of the rally from last week’s low is possible support at 98.48. This level is in line with the 9/6 and 9/16 lows.
LEVELS: 97.75 98.16 98.48 | 99.35 99.89 100.60
