Today I’m going to show you exactly how I’m trading USDJPY.

USDJPY is bouncing from the 138.00 support this week, a level I pointed out last week.

However, the pair remains below the March trend line, and the DXY is below 101.00, making dollar longs unfavorable for now.

USDJPY is testing the underside of the March trend line today, a level I mentioned last week.

That area comes in at 140.00, making it one that buyers must reclaim to turn USDJPY higher toward 142.30.

However, with the US Dollar Index (DXY) below 101.00, I can’t justify getting bullish on the USD.

If the DXY were to reclaim the 101.00 area, I would flip my bias.

But, for now, I remain bearish on the DXY toward 98.00, which implies a lower USDJPY, given the correlation.

With that said, any USDJPY shorts from the 140.00 area will have to contend with 138.00 support.

It will take a sustained break below 138.00 to open up lower levels, such as 133.70 and 130.70.

Alternatively, a sustained break above the 140.50 area would expose 142.30.
