US Dollar Remains a Sell versus Japanese Yen

USDJPY– Retail FX traders remain extremely long the US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen, and a contrarian view of crowd positioning acts as signal the USD/JPY may continue lower. Our data shows there are currently over 4 positions long for every short—near multi-year extremes. A critical question is whether the pair stands to reverse at the ¥100 mark.

Our technical forecast calls for further USD/JPY weakness as long as the pair holds below key resistance near ¥103. It would likely take a substantive price reversal to force a comparable shift in sentiment, and until that happens we will continue to call for USD/JPY declines.
