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.

    • I am willing to share the subscription cost. Let me know if you are interested 
    • My guess is that the COT numbers are based on Tuesday figures. So a weekly chart wouldn't distinguish between the different numbers on Monday and Tuesday.
    • 4 months in and Marketsmith has done really NOTHING for me......still waiting for that stock that will make the year worth it and pay for the $1500 dollar price tag......the paper has become virtually useless......especially since I used it for Political mostly political reference with Issues and Insights.......the rest of the paper is mostly geared to Stock advisers.....not the regular guy........way to boring saying nothing but how to treat guys like me.........this could be my last year.
    • Date : 22nd July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2019.No deal Brexit risks will continue to unsettle markets next week as the two candidates hardened their rhetoric in end stages of the party elections. The ECB however will stand out as the event of the week,with Brexit uncertainty an important part of the overall outlook. Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication. Tuesday – 23 July 2019   The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister next Tuesday. Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected. Wednesday – 24 July 2019   Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively. Thursday – 25 July 2019   German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier. Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month. On balance, markets see more merit in keeping official rates unchanged next week, while moving to an official easing bias and promising that rates will be at “current or lower” levels well into next year. ECB Monetary Policy Statement (EUR, GMT 12:30) -The July meeting will clearly be a “live” one with doves and hawks battling it out over when to deliver the now widely expected easing measures. It is expected that the majority will see more merit in keeping policy settings unchanged, but change the guidance to introduce a clear easing bias. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.0% in June, after a -1.3% figure in May. Transportation orders should rise 2.7%. Boeing orders rose to only 9 from just zero in May, with weakness due to the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments. Vehicle assemblies should ease to 11.1 mln from an 11.3 mln pace in May. Durable shipments are expected to rise 0.5%, and inventories should rise 0.6%. The I/S ratio is expected to hold steady at 1.67 since April. Friday – 26 July 2019   Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow 1.8% in Q2, with a sturdy 2.4% growth rate for final sales thanks to solid growth rates of 3.9% for personal consumption and 4.3% for government purchases, alongside a big $27 bln unwind of the Q1 inventory pop.
