Corporations saying it is going to 110-115 while others are saying we are headed back to 90. Will be interesting to see who is right. Japan needs YEN at 100 to keep their corporations from losing money and 110 to see profits and growth.

Best to stay out and not enter a trade now unless you are very long and hoping for 110 this year but otherwise it could spike to 106 or drop to 103. S&P 500 could see mid 1850's next week so with a strong S&P 500 the Dollar could rally further.

from my point of view it is developing a contracting triangle and this contracting triangle seems to break in the same direction like the one on the eurusd will do.....the winner here is going to be the eurjpy

usdjpy and eurusd move somewhat parallel ...eurjpy has bigger vaiation levels though..

 

usdjpy is near a very good buy zone bt this range has become so unpredictable....

Im still not sure where i shd go a log at 102 with target 105 which is think could happen if it gets a nice support here..

 

What do u say what i should do?

Decided to pull out of 101.7 long. 102.2 was not even touched let alone 102.7. I think the unusual strength in S&P 500 which is nearly topping even though dollar index is headed downwards is dubious at best.

UBS has entered a fresh USD/JPY position as a trade recommendation from 103.00, targeting 105.00 initially and then 110.00, with a stop at 101.00.

Coming into the year, a favorite trade was to sell the yen on expectations of easing. Those expectations continue to be dampened and the yen is one of the top performers this year and the best G8 currency this month. There is talk that official channels are buying USD/JPY to limit the downside. If so, that’s a factor that can’t last forever."

 

So, there is intervention since the beginning of the year to maintain Yen weakness.

 

I think the current confrontation with Russia will cause them to throw in the towel, as far as weakening the Yen is concerned. And we will see USDJPY under 100.00 in the near term. It might even hit 90.00 depending on how far Russia/West is willing to take the fight.

Strongly disagree here. Usdjpy is here to stay well above 100, with much, much higher levels to come.

 

Just saying.

Well it was an assumption on if certain possibilities may turn real which currently isnt likely though.

 

Agreeing to ur and general perception of many of the other currency analysts around the world long term is indeed Bullish.

Closed my longs opened from 101.1x , will be looking to go another long on a good setup. This pair only seems to be the long play on the safe side..

Descending trend line resistance on H1 again signals 101.50 and 101.30 levels. However a sustained break could once again lead the pair towards 102 level.

While Japan is on QE working on reaching 2% inflation target until 2016 or when 2% inflation target is reached and QE is lifted, whichever is earlier, JPY will be weak. I think all JPY pairs trends will be UP. They will go down from time to time but the overall trend will be UP.

if ECB do cut the interest rate to negative level,

EUR will be regarded as a better carry-trade currency than JPY.

i will not be surprised to see a nice diving performance of U/J soon.

    • Can I ask what broker are you using for trading oil?
    • Hey, I am new to this. Anyone use software like this?? Is it legit?? 
    • Extend Trend Lines is a VTL Client-side indicator for elongating the trend lines on the chart to the last bar. Traders usually draw trend lines on the chart and use them as support resistance levels. When a trend line breakout happens, it is the beginning of a new trend. One issue with trend lines drawn manually on the chart is that they do not get elongated when new bars form on the chart. It should be manually adjusted with new bars.  Extend Trend Lines VTL Indicator takes care of this situation. It automatically adjusts all trend lines on the chart to the last bar. It monitors the trend lines on each new bar and adjust them.  This is useful when the trader opens the terminal on a new day and the old trend lines are short and need adjustments.   ExtendTrendLines.zip
    • Previous day high low is a Client Side VTL indicator that draws the last day’s high, low and today’s open on the chart. When day trading, the previous day’s high and low are important reference points or support resistance levels. In a bullish market price breaks above the previous day’s high early in the day and continue to trade above that level.  In bear markets, price break below the previous day’s low early in the day and continue to trade below that level.  Trading ranges form when price fails to break the previous day’s high or low successfully.  This info alone can improve your trading results as this give you a clear vision of what is likely to happen today. Breakout trading strategies work best when price is above or below yesterday’s range. Trend following strategies also work best in this situation.  When price is inside yesterday range, counter trend strategies work better. Oscillators like RSI and Stochastics work best in this situation.   Prev_Day_High_Low.zip
    • volatility.   STARC bands is used in two modes. First one is as a trend following indicator. For this enter 1.33 for parameter KATR. Now when price breaks out of the bands, there is a high probability that price move will continue in that direction. Open positions in the breakout direction.   To use STARC bands as an oversold overbought indicator, make parameter KATR 3. Now when the price reaches the bands, chances are that it is a short-term price extreme. Countertrend trades can be opened here.   Parameters: 1.       MA_Period – Moving Average Period 2.       ATR_Period – Average True Range Period 3.       KATR – ATR multiplier 4.       Shift – Number of bars to shift forward   STARC Bands.zip
