(Video) USDJPY Future Direction Hinges on 109.30


Will the USDJPY weaken further? Or is the risk-off trade over?

The USDJPY is testing a key resistance area today.

I wrote about this 109.20/30 area on January 23rd.

In that commentary, I mentioned how a close below that region would suggest weakness.

Last Monday’s gap down gave us just that.

That’s when the January 24th close at 109.27 became our primary focus.

I wrote about how this level was likely to attract sellers on January 28th.

Hours later, the USDJPY reached a high of 109.26 before losing nearly 100 pips over the next three sessions.

However, the yen’s safe-haven status means the value of the currency is closely tied to risk assets like stocks.

And getting stocks to move lower is no easy task.

As you can see, the USDJPY has nearly clawed back everything it lost last week.

Given what I just mentioned about the yen’s relationship to stocks, it’s no surprise to see the S&P 500 back to last week’s highs too.

But in the end, it always comes back to price action.

The USDJPY is hovering below that 109.20/30 resistance area, which means it’s still intact as resistance and attracting sellers.

Only a daily close above 109.30 would change that.

The “daily close” refers to the 5 pm EST close when using New York close charts, which are essential for trading price action the way I do.

Such a close would target 109.70 and perhaps 110.20.

Alternatively, if the USDJPY remains below 109.20/30, we could see another run at recent lows at 108.30, which intersects with ascending channel support.

Hi, good point from Adam’s side. I follow this webpage and what I’m missing is some insight into real Risk Management. You inform here when you entered or when took profit. How about taking losses? I counted 3 recent trades Eur/Nzd, gbp/aud and now USD/jpy which were potentially failed. Do you share in membership area Enter/stop loss/take profit strategy of real trades? I’m writing that comment to improve the page, however it’s great No matter what.
