Hello once more. I have decided to create my second Finlogix technical analysis for the USDJPY FX pair.
Not so long ago, last January within this year 2021, I have created a long trade plan for the Greenback against the Yen with a risk:reward ratio of 2. Luckily, it was a hit and I am proud to say as one of my winners! You can review its trading plan details on my profile.
I have also mentioned in my previous Nikkei long analysis about some insights for the USDJPY citing it as one of the key movers last week.
I totally understand that quicker time frames can offer much safer risk protections but I prefer to use the USDJPY monthly chart this time to explain what I am seeing on the macro side of trading.
In fact, using the monthly time frame gives me a clearer view of the pair’s price action in the long term scenario.
I will give credit first for the USDJPY buyers being able to push the price to a fresh 3 year high! To be more conservative, the 115 mark is a juicy sell zone already but I speculate that the buyers are still not done yet. After breaking the 2 year resistance found at the 112 mark (50% Fib retracement), the USDJPY is still bullish on the monthly chart based on its monthly RSI!
Once the weekly correction is through, I am convinced that 112 now is a flipped S/R and next target will be the 115.50 (61.80% Fib retracement) which we can have a bullish extension possibility towards the USDJPY’s 5 year high!
I have also layout my monthly Elliot waves theory and looks like ABC correction is done last December 2020 to January 2021 double monthly candles followed by a fresh motive phase. From my Wyckoff’s perspective, we are still consolidating which I highlighted the range bounds in blue rectangle and might trigger for a re-accumulation mode.
If my analysis is correct, the monthly RSI can also re-test upward levels to support confluence from what I am seeing.
My USDJPY short entry will be the said 5 year high (double top monthly candles) set at the 118.60 mark. Take profit will be at the anticipated flipped 112 S/R which will become a very strong demand zone. The stop loss will be strictly observed at the 122 mark in case of an overbought scenario.
Overall the risk:reward score for my second USDJPY trading plan will be 1.941.
I hope this one makes another winner for me.
Good luck! Thanks a lot for reading my latest Finlogix analysis. I do hope you find my insights informative. Cheers!
