Daily sentiment overstretched for USDJPY

partner and technical analyst / 3 c analysis
United Kingdom

For the fourth week in a row, signals have continued to point higher, investors buying the market in May from close to the 200 week average for sentiment to rally towards ¥111.70, a 38% recovery to the entire 2016 losses.

While yesterday’s 1½ Big Fig gain is positive and confirming the view, a six Big Fig bounce since May’s more than 1½ year low has left daily sentiment overstretched near the 38% Fibonacci. Dips remain buying opportunities though, for a test of 38%.
