Shorting the Bounce in the USD/JPY at the 200 SMA
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
The uncertainty has been really high this year, with everything that has been going on politically and economically. Safe havens have been in demand, as is usually the case when markets are uncertain. As a result, the USD/JPY has been on a bearish trend since June.
The lows have been getting lower and the highs have been getting lower too, as shown by the descending trend line. In the US election week, the sentiment turned negative for the USD again, and this forex pair lost around 200 pips, falling to 103.20s.
Last Monday, we saw a big surge after news of the coronavirus vaccine from Pfitzer, which improved the sentiment in forex, sending safe havens lower. At the end of last week, we saw another reversal down, but last night, the USD/JPY pulled back higher, After the 50 MA (yellow) held as support on the H4 chart, despite being pierced. We decided to open a sell forex signal below the 200 SMA, which also held as resistance, and now the price is starting to reverse back down again, so hopefully the price will reach the TP profit soon.
