-USDJPY traded above 99 (Oct high) and into the previously uncovered 9/20 close and trendline that extends off of the May and July highs before getting slammed back into the range.
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.” Apparently, the market is not ready. Remember, 96.50 and 99 on a daily closing basis need to be seen before we can participate.
LEVELS: 96.86 97.39 97.80 | 98.40 99.00 99.40
