Risk sentiment is this week's focus following the US/British/French attack on Syria, with the USDJPY's tentative breakout beginning to falter as prices head into the Ichimoku Cloud.

USDJPY signals point lower

partner and technical analyst / 3 c analysis
United Kingdom
Instrument: USDJPY
Price target:
Market price:

Despite posting three higher daily lows and highs in a row, Tuesday’s signals switched to bearish. These have been confirmed, investors selling the market from close to last week’s 102.83 high and below the 13-day average rate for sentiment to deteriorate by almost ¾ Big Fig on the day. 

A small trend of higher daily lows has ended in Asia this morning and with signals continuing to point lower expect a test of this month's lows.

Entry: sell at market and at 101.60.

Stop: 101.95, today's high in Asia.

Target: 100.20, just above the five-week low and 99.01, June's base.

Hi Steve, if the target fails to materialise today, but the downward trend continues, will you be holding the trade longer?
Steve Lucas Steve Lucas
Hi Michael - from a risk management point of view, apart from the weekly call, I hold nothing overnight - if the target is not hit I usually scale back most of the position by UK time - I run the rest until 4pm UK time where I cut whether in profit or not. It just protects me from illiquid overnight movemenrts.....if I still like the terade I reinstate the next day. Hope this helps.
