EURJPY - Ending wedge offers a downside bias

Recommended Posts



I am not a great fan of trading non-farm payrolls. I sometimes find you have the correct view, only to be ‘spiked out ‘of your trades on the initial move. This results in me having a far more flexible stop policy, something that goes my system (normally stop above or below trigger candles).


 I also ‘think’ that we will see a move lower in JPY crosses.  More in EURJPY and GBPJPY than USDJPY as EURUSD and GBPUSD both have limited upsides. Taken a very small short in EURJPY. It is only half a signal (two out of three of my set parameters)  


Monthly: Trend of lower highs comes in at 140.00. The most important factor here is the congestion zone all the back from 2003


Weekly: Traded to the highest level in 128 weeks. We have broken through the Fibonacci congestion zone. A weekly close to current levels will post a bullish outside week and lead to further buying. However, we are yet to close!!!


Intraday (two-hours) – The most important timeframe in this outlook:

  1. Close to a correction and exhaustion count (DeMARK)
  2. Ending wedge. Measured move 135.22
  3. Bearish outside candle on the one-hour chart.

You have doing chart analysis with all these chart patterns etc.Most of this works only 30% of the time.If you would like to improve  your signals, I suggest you make the following additions to your analysis.


1)Add fundamental drivers  like interest rates expectations

2)Add correlated indices analysis because all indices are related,  if calling on ftse look at others like S and P, Nasdaq Dow and Dax 

3)Look at correlated pairs  like strength on eur /usd. usd jpy and also compare instrument strength like eurusd/eurgbp/eurjpy/eur cad  for eur strength, for usdjpy  see dollar USDJPY, cad CADJPY  , euro EURJPY and cable  GBPJPY. See link below to see how I trade Eurjpy

4)Give trade able option ideas like I have done  in some of the links below.

5)Keep to a few quality signals , otherwise you get a reputation


This is how to trade Eurjpy




Keep your t/a simple  K I S S Keep your trading so simple

When was the trade triggered , what was stop , where are actual entry and exit  levels posted , There was a trade at 19.00 at 136.23 .That trade went 200 pips , 


A full trade should have been triggered yesterday evening, because yen gets stronger in crisis .I actually traded it and made money.There were technical set ups on usd jpy, eur/usd and eur jpy.

I can note that you only comment on the trades that we ‘don’t trigger’ or are wrong and never ON the profitable ideas. 


If you want to continue to ‘troll’ our trade views feel free. It is your energy you are expelling. We will no longer be commenting to your replies

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
