Forex: GBPJPY and USDJPY Opportunistic Trade Options

Forex: GBPJPY and USDJPY Opportunistic Trade Options

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Major fundamental themes like risk trends, the FOMC Taper and ECB easing are lurking but not active

• Opportunistic trading on exceptionally quiet pairs, clear ranges or imminent data is more appropriate

• We look at short-term opportunities with pairs like GBPJPY, GBPNZD, USDJPY, NZDUSD and others

Looking at the 50 percent Fib on EURUSD or 350 point range on GBPUSD, it is easy to envisage a major break and/or trend developing. Yet, the markets rarely do what we want them to. While there are a number of fundamental points over the coming 24 hours, few of them have a hope of reviving the major fundamental themes that move our markets - much less keeping them moving. That said, there are plenty of short-term setups that the opportunistic trader could take advantage of under the right scenarios. In today's Trading Video, we discuss a number of these setups and their fundamental drivers including GBPJPY, NZDUSD, USDJPY, AUDNZD and others.
