Are you new to FX or curious about your trading IQ?

FOREXAnalysis: The USDJPY dropped for a 5th consecutive day and continues to hold the 4/17 low at 97.20. The decline from the 4/22 high is in 5 waves and momentum on the downside has slowed considerably. That combination warns of a bounce before the potential for additional downside. 98.20 is initial resistance

FOREXTrading Strategy: Looking to short strength…probably between 98.47 and 99.22.

LEVELS: 94.95 95.79 96.70 98.20 98.47 99.22
