USDJPYRetail FX crowds have bought into the most recent US Dollar sell-off versus the Japanese Yen, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment warns the pair may test fresh lows.

Trade Implications – JPY Pairs: The USDJPY break above key resistance at ¥102.75 initially left us in favor of further strength. Yet traders remain indecisive, and indeed it seems as though the exchange rate could go on to test February lows near ¥101. Given that FX volatility prices remain near their lowest levels since the onset of the global financial crisis in 2007, we view major breaks in either direction as unlikely.
