USDJPY Discussions

Whats about today?

 

USD/JPY jumped to 110.28 on the back of unexpected BOJ monetary policy decision; it is currently trading at 110.28 from 109.39 registered right before the news hit the wires.

 

Dont think would be dropping below 110 today though...Overall trend is upward but we could see a downward correction from time to time...

 

Even BOJ is pessimist about their economical strength and had predicted this lacking of Yen's strength long ago..

Last week the Fed and the Bank of Japan created the perfect back drop for a continuation in the USD value versus the yen. The Fed did not say they were in a hurry to raise interest rates, but they did say the US economy had made sufficient recovery so QE could end on schedule. The BOJ went the other way. They would increase the stimulus, buying ¥80T a year up from ¥60T during the past year.

 

After close to a 900 pip rally, it is always tempting for the novice trader to sell the market since the rally has already carried "too far." Rarely does this work. Markets have an uncanny way of going too far in either direction.

Who would have thought 115 will be hit so soon. It was there in the background somewhere and been talked about but it will hit 115 from that 106-07 level in just a month or so was so unexpected.

Taking a look at the daily chart of USD/JPY, the correction on Friday was the largest one day decline for the currency pair since mid October. 114 is a near term support level that if broken would pave the way for a decline to 112.30. 112 should hold. If USD/JPY takes out its 6 year high of 115.58, the next stop should be the October 2007 high of 117.95.

Possible to see 118.50 before the end of the week! I will be monitoring that level closely. If we break above I will keep my longs. If we don't, then I will look at maybe scalping this consolidation range!

I expect another dip to 117.45ish area, which is good for a bullish move. If it continues up from here, I don't have confidence in how far it can go. I'd feel better if it dipped, then took off.

After the BOJ announced their increased monetary stimulus at the end of October the USDJPY soared from 112.57 to a high of 121.84. Then the market relaxed and a bout of safe haven demand resulted in yen buying which took us all the way to a swing low of 115.57. Following this break the Fed's comments were deemed bullish for equities and the USD, and we rally to 119.31. So what is next?

The next big meeting is in March so there’s no need to rush any changes. If we are right and the Fed provides no fresh insight at this week’s meeting, their tightening bias will make the dollar more attractive and drive USD/JPY higher.

Technically, there is short-term support at 117.15 and more significant support at 115.57. The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 1998 to 2011 decline at 120.18 will cap gains for the time being.

Taking a look at the daily chart of USD/JPY, the break above 120 puts the currency pair on track for further gains. However there are a 2 main resistance levels to be mindful of – 120.80 and 121.85. These levels halted previous rallies in the pair. Support is at 120.

Right, but 119 is also very strong support/resistance level. I took short when I got a H4 double top at 119,2, for since two or three days I saw no real bullish pressure on UJ. So far so good. Please pay attention that several yen crosses pairs arealso entering resistance area. If they start going south, that will be additional buying pressure on the JPY.

 

Currently (2015 02 19 5 09 AM GMT) the pair is rebounding up on both H4 SMA100 and 200 at 1118,36. If you are confident in the uptrend, nice place to enter long. If you are confident.

    • Gold Is Trapped In A Narrowing Price Band Lacking In Directional Bias XAUUSD Price Analysis – February 14 Gold did not have a strong directional inclination and traded in a limited exchanging band around the $ 1,575 level during the early European session on Friday. The blend of separating powers couldn’t give any new catalyst or support the valuable metal to build up a positive shift of the previous session to the tops in a week. Key Levels Resistance Levels: $ 1611, $ 1595, $ 1585 Support Levels: $ 1550, $ 1540, $ 1517 XAUUSD Long term Trend: Bullish The metal has printed lower highs and higher lows since it reached $ 1,611.49 level in early January. This took the form of a tapering price band or a declining triangle. Marvin Steinberg und seine Sicht auf den STO-Markt: https://coincierge.de/2020/marvin-steinberg-und-seine-sicht-auf-den-sto-markt/ Admitting past the upper limit may mean the resumption of the uptrend from November lows of about $ 1455.70 level and may lead to a move past the recent high of $ 1611.49 level. XAUUSD Short term Trend: Ranging The day after a slight decrease in price, gold came back to the resistance region of $1575 – $1578 levels. With the RSI indicating a potential move higher, we could see some expansion in force. However, gold requires to get through the barrier zone to affirm further advancement and besides, it additionally needs to break past the recent highs to keep up an upswing. Instrument: XAUUSD Order: Buy Entry price: $1,575 Stop: $ 1,563 Target: $1,580 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.

    • Ripple (XRP) Starts New Uptrend, Battles Next Resistance At $0.34 Key Resistance Levels: $0.30, $0.40, $0.45 Key Support Levels: $0.25, $0.20, $0.15 XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish On February 11, Ripple slumped to the low of $0.26 and rebounded as the coin reached a new high of $0.32. Before this time, the bulls have been finding it difficult to break the resistance at $0.28. Analysts are of the view that a break above $0.28 will push XRP to a high of $0.31. Today the market has reached a high of $0.34 but has pulled back to the support of $0.32. The upward move has been temporarily put on hold because of the minor resistance at $0.34. Nonetheless, the bulls have to make efforts to break the current resistance. From the price action, if the bulls succeed in breaking the resistance at $0.34, XRP will rally above $0.40. This is because there will be little or no resistance between $0.34 and $0.40. Therefore, we shall lookout for the next price between $40 and $0.45. Daily Chart Indicators Reading: As Ripple appreciated to a high of $0.32, the Relative Strength Index period 14 has risen to level 80. This implies that Ripple is in the overbought region of the market. The implication is that once the coin is overbought, sellers will be generated in the region to push the coin downward. Buyers are not available in the region to push the coin upward. However, in exceptional cases price will linger in the overbought region before the downward move. Marvin Steinberg und seine Sicht auf den STO-Markt: https://coincierge.de/2020/marvin-steinberg-und-seine-sicht-auf-den-sto-markt/ XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish On the 4-hour chart, the upward move was as a result of a bounce on the trend line. The rally reached a high of $0.34 but the price found support above $0.32. Thereafter the bulls made two attempts at the resistance without a success. The coin is fluctuating below the resistance. 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Ripple is trading below 80% range of the daily stochastic. This means that XRP is in bearish momentum. The coin is likely to fall. Meanwhile, 21-day SMA and 50-day SMA are sloping upward indicating that uptrend is ongoing General Outlook for Ripple (XRP) Ripple is currently fluctuating above $0.32 support but below the $0.34 resistance. The bulls have one more hurdle at $0.34 resistance to jump over. Ripple will be out of the downtrend zone if the bulls are successful above the resistance. There is also the possibility of a new uptrend as soon as the resistance at $0.34 is breached. Ripple (XRP) Trade Signal Instrument: XRPUSD Order: Buy Entry price: $0.33 Stop: $0.32 Target: $0.45 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
