A contrarian USDJPY trade: Lambert

Clive Lambert - FuturesTechs
Clive Lambert, of FutureTechs, explains why is aiming to sell USDJPY.

He has got a slightly contrarian trade today as the overall trend in USDJPY is higher, but he has done well this week trading this to the short side after we posted a Doji on Tuesday upon hitting resistance at 118.65.

Yesterday saw weakness through support at 116.05 but we’ve rallied in overnight trade, he says.
Clive Lambert points out that 116.30-50 is a big area of resistance so as long as we stay below here we can try a short, targeting a return to 115.00 then a move to Fibonacci support at 112.00.
Obviously one caveat with any dollar-based trade today is the US payrolls release later today, Clive says.
The trade involves selling below 116.30, a stop above 116.65 and targets at 115.10 and 112.10, Lambert concludes.

Lambert explains the background to a selected trade every Friday on Trading Floor.

Hi! How is your view on USDJPY?

Hi! clearly this trade didnt work out, as we spiked higher on friday's numbers. We have seen weakness this morning though, after a strong Asian session saw us up to 117.52. So it's a bit of a mixed outlook short term, although my charts do suggest that a pullback to 116.15 could provide a buying opportunity.
