Japanese Yen – Retail forex traders remain impressively long the US Dollar against the Japanese Yen—most are not usually this good at sticking to sharp trends. That said, a recent shift in sentiment still leaves us contrarian bullish USDJPY.

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.
