US Dollar Expected to Gain Further versus Japanese Yen
NEW: View Real-Time SSI Updates via the FXCM Trading Station Desktop
USDJPY – Retail FX traders continue to hold USD-long positions against the Japanese Yen, and this would normally act as contrarian signal that USD/JPY could decline. Yet we have seen sentiment shift notably since last week; long positions are down 14 percent while short positions are down a lesser 4 percent.
Retail sentiment gives us an effectively mixed USD trading bias versus the Yen, but a hold of key support suggests the Greenback may indeed continue higher.
