Risk 0.75%.

Short Trade

  • Short trade entry following a bearish price action reversal on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 107.48.

  • Put the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

Long Trade

  • Long trade entry following a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame immediately upon the next touch of 106.14 or 105.52.

  • Put the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the price reaches 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to ride.

The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

USD/JPY Analysis

Yesterday I repeated that I had a bearish bias below 108.05, and noted this pair was at the heart of the Forex market and had room to fall further. This was and remains a correct approach, and the pair remains in focus. The price made a further strong downwards movement to a new 15-month low price at 106.19, still falling at the time of writing just before the London open. This latest downwards move began with a sell-off following a retracement to the psychologically key 107.50 area, printing a new resistance level there.

All the signs are bearish, except for the price getting very close now to a key support level at 106.14. I would not take a long trade here today unless there is an extremely strong bullish bounce here which would indicate heavy buying. I think it is more likely that the level will not hold.

I maintain a bearish bias and this pair will probably remain at the heart of the Forex market again today.

USDJPY
