Shorting Yen Crosses in Early Week Trade

Jamie Saettele, CMT

The EURJPY, CHFJPY, AUDJPY, CADJPY, and NZDJPY carved out Weekly J Spike Reversals. As such, I’d like to short early week strength in Yen crosses. Levels of interest as resistance are 12556-12606 EURJPY, 10208/45 CHFJPY, 9628/55 AUDJPY, 9325/54 CADJPY, and 7819/48 NZDJPY.

My trading will focus on EURJPY (EURJPY short was exited last night at 12400 for +225 pips) and AUDJPY but AUDJPY is probably the best play as per EURAUD structure (bullish) and AUDUSD structure (bearish). On that front, I’ll be looking to return to a long EURAUD position this week – I’d like to see an up day above trendline support before going back in.
