USDJPY Discussions

Recommended Posts

So it seems to me my USDJPY trade has been ultimately successful and my first profit target, 110.00, is actually being approached. Here we should be looking to close half the position and move our stop-loss to brief support around 107.00 or if you want to be really risky move it to the entry at 104.90. Below we offer a daily chart perspective to show the recent run up!!

I would say is about to revisit 108 sooner rather than later.

 

TW

 

U mean its gonna go down back to 108? i personally dont think thats gonna happen. Id rather say it'll be 109 sooner rather than later and then to the Holy Grail (the 110 mark) that everyone has been talking abt.

USDJPY has gone from 101 (June 2014) to almost 110 (October 2014).. Just 5 months...wow

 

Traders could have made hundred of thousands has they gone long into it 6 months ago and held until now..

As for USDJPY I say...Stop being so afraid of 110.00, we all know the banks are going to take this pair to 115.00. I have a video posted (right side of page) that even tells us the likelihood and story of the trip. On a 60min chart we can see timid traders waiting for the banks to come back to this pair (and out of EURGBP) to send the price higher for us.

If you're like me and got in around 105.00 be strong and confident, wait, you'll be happy you did.

108.9 to 109.22 looks to be the only barrier in the way. If it is to move up.

There rapid fall of the yen to the 110 level is now causing concern. In the Nikkei Asia Review it was reported:

 

Discord emerges in Japan over yen's accelerated slide......The rapid depreciation of the yen in recent weeks has sparked concerns that the currency's slide against the dollar has gone too far. It

now appears the weak yen is creating more problems, rather than benefits for the economy.

How the mighty have fallen! Just a few weeks ago USD/JPY was racing towards 110.00 and the market was convinced that Fed rate hikes were on the way. But with US yields having fallen more than 30bps in the past month and with risk aversion running rampant, the pair has seen a swift decline and today broke below its former breakout point at 107.00. Tomorrow the market will get a glimpse at the US Retail Sales data which could prove to be the key event of the week. If the numbers surprise to the upside them the theme of lower oil prices and resurgent US consumer could put the bid back into the buck. But if the data once again misses to the downside the market is going to unwind the USD/JPY longs even more and the pair could test the 106.00 level next.

I think after hitting that long awaited 110 this pair did its purpose and now bulls are no more interested in this pair anymore after that mark has been reached.

Technicals are looking strong at this moment for the upside. Great consolidation around 108. Slight drop to 107.50 is possible with a max drop of 107 this week. However, climb back to 109 is far more likely come medium term.

    • First, we need diligence to successfully implement any financial plan. In the example above, those with livestock are advised to carefully monitor the state and condition of their animals. If an animal becomes ill, it needs special care. Insufficient food or water for livestock requires immediate attention. A farmer with herds must look after his animals if they are to survive and the household is to prosper. How does this apply to those of us who aren’t farmers or ranchers? The fundamental lesson is that we cannot expect financial success by simply devising a plan and then blissfully ignoring the factors that affect it. Instead, we must know where, how and why we spend our money and what is happening with our assets. If we ignore this principle of diligently monitoring our finances, we will find ourselves making poor decisions and spending money we don’t have.
    • I have been working with automated charts for about ten years now, with TradeStation's EasyLanguage.  I don't do the programming, but I pay somoeone to do the work for me.  I have had well over one-hundred strategies created over the years, and several hundreds of different versions of the strategies.  I often trade live; the US equities market.   An old strange problem that I used to experience on rare occasions just re-surfaced today; when I am trading live, and the entry order does not show up on the chart at all (I always check both boxes for fully automated trading (no confirmation necessary).  When I click off the live trading, the trade suddenly appears where it should on the chart, but the live orders were not sent, so it obviously does me no good.  To make matters worse, the only time that this strange thing seems to happens is on the REALLY profitable trades!  I am using one-minute time frames, and my chart is set up for 10 days.  When I use this setting with backtesting, all of the trades show up.  If anyone could please help me with this very frustrating issue, you would be a "lifesaver"!  Thank you very much.
