-The USDJPY is churning below the October high (98.99).
-An impulsive rally from the 10/8 low, corrective decline from the 10/17 high and impulsive advance from the 10/25 low suggests that 99 will be exceeded but perhaps not until a deeper pullback from 99.67.
-The market found low on Tuesday from at the top side of a broken trendline.
Trading Strategy: This market is coiled for a big move to end the year. Triangles are usually continuation patterns but it’s possible that the eventual break ‘surprises’ to the downside. We’ll trade it either way when it’s ready.
LEVELS: 97.39 97.80 98.25 | 98.99 99.66 99.99
