Weekly Analysis of Trade Set ups & Ideas USDJPY

USDJPY (19th November to 23rd November)

This pair has been very choppy for the last few weeks, but prices are at a major resistance. The US Dollar has been strong overall hence the bullish rally of the yen. The rally came to a halt at the major resistance zone where the currency has had major consolidation. Last week a weekly bearish engulfing candlestick pattern formed, warning us of a potential reversal setup.

Summary: Based on last week’s reversal engulfing candlestick, our bias on this pair remains to go short, however, we will be keen to wait for more confirmation that the trend has actually reversed in order for us to join the downtrend trend.
