Japanese Yen – Forex trading crowds remain steadily long the USDJPY as the pair trades near significant peaks. This is admittedly unusual—traders are not often long into such strong uptrends. Our SSI-based forecast is unclear.

Trade Implications – USDJPY: Positioning is mostly unchanged since last week—as is the USDJPY itself. Surprisingly resilient retail trader sentiment has meant some tough trading for our top two strategies (Momentum2/”Tidal Shift” and Breakout2). Indeed, we see better sentiment-driven trading opportunities in other JPY pairs.
