USDJPY Forecast to test ¥97 as Japanese Yen Breaks Highs

USDJPY Forecast to test ¥97 as Japanese Yen Breaks Highs

Japanese Yen – Three weeks ago I wrote plainly in favor of a JPY bounce (USDJPY decline) as sentiment seemed exceedingly one-sided. Indeed, a USDJPY-short position remains one of my favorite trades for the same reasons.

Trade Implications – USDJPY: Retail forex traders are now their most aggressively net-long the USDJPY since the pair traded below ¥80 in November, and our contrarian sentiment-based trading strategies have gone aggressively in the opposite direction.

Our Breakout2 system recently went short from ¥99.67, and I like the position as long as we stay below critical resistance at ¥100.50. The fact we’ve now broken key reaction lows at ¥98.60 leaves subsequent targets at May lows near ¥97.00.
