Trends and Targets for 8/03/2018

Share this

THE US DOLLAR vs THE JAPAN YEN (FX:USDJPY) This particular pairing is usually quite logical in its behaviour. The results in the immediate situation where we've no choice but to regard it as heading toward 102 currently. Some sort of bounce is probable at 102.

However, there are quite serious implications should the 102 level break as a drift down to 96.5 seems very possible. The visuals associated with such calamity are far from good. We bang on about Lower Lows and warn, should 96.5 make a guest appearance, this pairing will breach the lows of 2016 which would be a really bad thing, suggesting a future price tag of 75 shall make itself known.

The funny thing about this particular disaster is the jaggy pink line on the chart. Historically, this relationship has a glass floor at roughly 101 with a break below such a level bringing near certainty to the future presence of 75.

To escape this mess, the pairing requires better the dashed BLUE line on the chart, currently 112.6. A movement such as this will prove fairly significant, allowing for 115 initially with secondary, if bettered, a further 121. Somewhat amusingly, this will imply a future donk against the long term downtrend from 28 years ago, a trend which has proven unbreakable so far. We would anticipate some strong growth in the event this currency pair manages a miracle movement upward.

That's it with FOREX for now. We shall revisit the terrible trio GBPUSD, GBPEUR, USDJPY in another few months to check what's been happening.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
