Taking Aim at USD/JPY
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
Our AUD/USD signal didn´t go well overnight. It was in profit at a certain time after the RBA statement, but the USD bulls got a dose of steroids early this morning. I don´t know where it came from but it took the Buck 100 pips higher in a few hours.
But, this latest USD surge also opened up the door for some other forex trades. One of them appeared in USD/JPY a while ago and we thought that this is a good opportunity, so we pulled the trigger on that one and the USD/JPY signal is now live.
Let´s hope the 50 moving average in yellow is a good gate keeper
The reasons for this forex signal are quite a few.
1. The trend is clearly down and it´s pretty strong
2. The retrace/pullback higher this morning seems sort of stretched. Both stochastic and RSI indicators are oversold as you can easily distinguish on the H1 UD/JPY chart
3. The 50 SMA in yellow is providing some solid resistance at 112.40
4. The 112.40-50 area was a really strong support level on the way down, so it´s likely that it will turn into strong resistance now
So, these were the reasons and indicators that we opened this forex signal at 112.29. The price moved about 10-15 pips higher afterwards, but has now pulled back down a bit.
It looks technically good at the moment and the US economic data is pretty light today. So, let´s hope the techs do their job and we reach the take profit target soon.
