US Dollar May Have Turned versus Japanese Yen

USDJPY Retail FX traders remain heavily long the US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment would normally leave us calling for USD losses. Yet a fairly significant week-over-week change in positions suggests that the pair may be in the midst of an important reversal. Long positions have fallen 25 percent while short positions are up 17 percent. A sustained shift would leave us in favor of buying into USD/JPY gains.
