Dollar Yen Pip Making


Apr.02.2014

For Japanese watch below. 日本語バージョンはこちら。

The pick of the day is USD/JPY, who’s dancing move fell right in the path of my prediction and earned us some pips! Let’s take a look at the bigger picture first on the weekly dance floor which we have been eyeing for 8 months now, the pair finally seems to be completing wave 5 of the impulsive Elliot waves and might still have some room to move up.

On the daily dance floor my bullish position  was automatically closed  at 103.6 last night over the Asian session. If you still have an open bullish position, there is a chance that the pair moves up to the previous top at 105.45 before pulling back again because the RSI hasn’t yet reached the overbought zone. So be cautious about the market sentiment before exiting, and if you have already closed your trade, congratulations on your pips!

Overnight we saw Japan ride the US' coat tails and add 1% to the value of the Nikkei. Other factors boosting the optimism levels include the Tankan survey showing that companies expect inflation of 1.5% over the next few years - a sign that Abenomics may be working. Also GPIF, Japan's largest pension fund announced that it will begin investing in funds in high yielding Japanese stocks to boost returns.
