Guest Commentary: USD/JPY Long Powered by Elliott Wave and Equities
It’s no secret that USDJPY trades largely in lockstep with both the S&P 500 and US bond markets. Now, with the S&P 500 at new all-time highs and US bond markets heading south, USDJPY is poised to move higher as well.
Using Elliott wave and Fibonacci analysis, we take a look at a trade signal that just fired off in USDJPY and how exactly to handle the trade as price closes in on formidable daily resistance.
Trade: Buy USDJPY at 103.80
Stop Loss: Place stop at 103.55
Price Targets: Remove half the position at 104.20 and let the remaining position run, targeting 104.40
Trade Management: Move the stop to breakeven if price reaches 104.00
