USDJPY : Correction Within Uptrend

Gregor Horvat

USDJPY has turned sharply lower in the last few weeks which now looks like a new leg within ongoing complex correction. We are tracking red wave 4) which can be a triangle or even a flat, but for now we will focus on a triangle which means that current leg down can be limited around 118.00 area. We would not be surprised by a bullish turn up into wave D later this month. more…

USD/JPY: 2016 A Year For The Bulls Or Bears?

Fawad Razaqzada

It is already the end of 2015 and what a year it has been for the financial markets. US equity markets took investors for a wild ride only to end almost where they started; oil was on a slippery slope as it plummeted to multi-year lows as OPEC decided to keep its taps open, adding more crude to an already-saturated market due to the shale revolution; the Swiss franc soared in January but bled lower for much of the year after the SNB more…

Honey, I Shrunk The Euro

USDJPY: Bearish Pennant In Progress

Nenad Kerkez

USD has recovered to some extent after bad NFP result mostly by rising of US yields and general USD sentiment. Technically we can spot a huge bearish pennant on H4 chart with a clear range in between. Adding to that we can see that MACD is going sideways and histograms are very small which indicates that the pair is stuck in a range with no momentum. more…

USDJPY Targets 116.6

Ville Vainio

USDJPY continued the decline after NFP on Friday. My preferred wave count is looking for a 3 wave structure and is looking at this decline as wave 2 correction on the way higher. Fibonacci expansion tool on the charts gives targets of 118.6 and 116.6 respectively. These levels are 100% and 161.8% relationships for wave C to wave A. more…
