The Japanese Yen is at major risk of reversal as forex crowds switch direction, and indeed the biggest loser might be the US Dollar. What are our strategies trading?


Last week our proprietary retail forex trader data showed crowds remained heavily long the Yen versus the Dollar and other major counterparts. Yet much of the same traders have most recently sold into JPY gains.


It’s admittedly early to call for a major reversal of such one-sided Yen moves. Yet we can’t ignore these key risks to the USDJPY and other JPY crosses.
