USDJPY The US Dollar continues to trade near major highs versus the Japanese Yen, and extremely one-sided sentiment leaves us firmly in favor of buying into gains.

Trade Implications – JPY Pairs: The majority of retail traders in our sample turned short the USDJPY as it traded above ¥103. Until we see a shift towards crowd buying, our algorithms will continue to buy into Dollar strength.

There are early warnings that the USDJPY may correct lower before its next break higher, but such a pullback would likely present an attractive opportunity to buy in anticipation of further strength.
