Buy USD/JPY at the 50 Daily SMA After This Week’s Retreat, With A Stop Below 120?

The JPY has turned out to be the weakest currency this month, with USD/JPY increasing around 10 cents from around 1.15 to 1.25. The FED and other central banks have turned bullish, tightening the monetary policy and are accelerating it as inflation keeps surging, while the Bank of Japan is way behind. So, the JPY has been declining against all major currencies.

But, in the last two days, we have seen a reversal down, which was due after such a major surge to the upside. Although, the retreat has stopped at the 50 SMA (yellow) on the H4 chart, which is acting as support, so we decided to open a buy forex signal just above this moving average, targeting 123.30, with a stop loss below 120.
