USD/JPY Discussion

What do you think about this? USDJPY is trying to break the 38.6 level. Is it going for the 50% level?

I am already short USD/JPY a day ago at 112.92...Don't think that it will push further in the retracement..


Thanks,

Nader

you're still in the short? i hate loosing money in carry-over for the weekend.

FxFox May 27, 2006 6:55am | Post# 4

I expect the fall will resume at around 114.15.
But, i think being short from 112.85/90 with SL 113.15 is still worth of risking 25/30 pips.

US/JP
 
do you still think the dollar will head towards 125 still. or could we be looking at a turnaround at about 124extreme. by next week.....the feds are done raising rates/

fierceman Jun 15, 2007 9:18am | Post# 10

There is no guarantee that the Fed is done raising. In fact I *think* they will raise at least 25bp more, if not 50bp before this tightening cycle is over. The BoJ, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have any reason to raise and even if they do, the long term effect on the currency market will be but a blip on your charts. The only realistic positive for JPY at this point seems to be news relating to China, such as further tightening, investment controls/taxes, or a serious widening of the CNY trading band against USD. Any combination of these occurrences would most likely see JPY gain some value as a result of risk aversion (investors scrambling to exit their JPY funded positions, similar to March 2007) as well as an increase in Japanese exports which would become more competitive if the yuan is allowed to appreciate.

roslan1984 Jun 15, 2007 9:44am | Post# 11

I think will be turaround at about 124 , but I think It worth to look on it for a possible new high even if it wont happen and will be some small ( - )
My st : 122.80

Traex Jun 15, 2007 9:46am | Post# 12

So nobody is looking at 150.00 yet in 2-3 yrs.

Wallboroff Jun 15, 2007 9:49am | Post# 13

yet i see no real turning point in price action, maybe there is some light at the end of the day

Do not have the statistical probabilities on this but the UsdJpy normally retraces to atleast the 23.6 level of the weekly highs and lows. Obviously there is a very strong uptrend.

Of the previous 23 trading weeks not counting this past week it has retraced to the following fib levels. This past week is not counted yet because the weeks fib levels pretain to the following week.

USD/JPY heading north
 
Long since 121.57
How long do u want to hold the trade 4?
The market has just recently broken out of a massive continuation bull triangle.
The minimum target for this pattern is 135.00
It has huge support below at the about 121.30/122.00, the old range highs.
I shall be adding on with any pullbacks.

I've seen them fly before, don't believe they can't it's what they want you to think. They do it all the time on CNBC.

you got the wrong chart thus is wrong. take a look at the official chart that i posted originally and edit your reply accordingly. for instance, the angle of the drop arrow is wrong thus changing the target price drastically.

Wow, you guys must be really bored. How about you put some stops below and above the firm consolidation range and go fishing or something instead of provoking each other?

BOJ Minutes coming. Chatter has it coming hawkish. Might provide more bottoms to fish, although I'm not dumping my long positions before the announcement.

This is the UsdJpy weekly fib retracements probability based on this years weekly retracements. These fib levels are from last weeks high and low with each fib level showing how many times it has been retraced to. These fib retracements happen either the same week or the following week. As you can see there was little retracement from last weeks run. This week will determine what level of retracement has been reached.
