Are you new to FX or curious about your trading IQ?

FOREXAnalysis: Focused on USDJPY in Friday’s weekly and there it little else to add. “One setup that was described on Friday was to wait for a break through upward sloping resistance followed by a test of the topside of the line. Support is seen from the topside of that line down to the uncovered close at 97.50 (Friday’s close).” A sharp drop for at least 1 day may be near as price traded into the 50% retracement of the decline from the 2007 high on a small range and ended the day little changed (call it a doji or whatever…the point is that momentum slowed at an important reference point).

FOREXTrading Strategy: Not against trading from the short side if the right scenario develops…would need to see a drop below 98.50 to turn the minor bias down followed by at least 1 session (Asia, Europe, or US) of consolidation.

LEVELS: 96.70 97.50 98.50 99.84 101.44 103.50
