Forex Trade Ideas: Closed USDJPY Short at Loss

David Rodriguez

I got stopped out of my USDJPY short position as the pair closed above key highs, and soon I may look to get long once more.

Two days ago I wrote that I would close the short if we saw a daily close above ¥90.20, and indeed that's precisely what we saw.

It's always frustrating to see a position initially go in your direction only to reverse, but the decision to close the position seems correct in light of the fact that the pair has continued higher.

In my most recent piece I argue that USDJPY weakness should be bought--but only subject to good reward/risk.

As always I'll update my thoughts on the position via the Real Time News feed.
