Japanese YenForex trading crowds have bought aggressively into US Dollar weakness across the board, and in fact they are now their most long USDJPY since it set a key short-term bottom near ¥96.60.

Trade Implications – JPY Pairs: Our sentiment-based trading strategies have actually done well selling the Japanese Yen versus the British Pound (buying gains in GBPJPY), but their performance in the USDJPY itself has been underwhelming.

We’ll need to see a substantial break of key support at 96.60 OR a break above major resistance at 99.00 to take a stronger trading bias on the range-bound USDJPY. Indeed we see better trading opportunities in other JPY crosses.
