USD/JPY

The US dollar has broken down significantly against the Japanese yen on Friday, dropping about 80 pips by the time New York started. While that is not a huge move, it is relatively big for the last couple of weeks. The market stopped just above the ¥107 level and hung about there, so I think at this point it is likely that the area could bring some buyers in this vicinity, but if we were to break down below the ¥107 level, it opens up the possibility of a move down to the ¥106 level where we had seen a bit of a bounce.

To the upside, the 50 day EMA continues to hang above the ¥107.75. A break above there opens up the possibility of a move towards the 200 day EMA, which at this point I think that the sellers would be an influence as well. Ultimately, this is a pair that continues to chop around, and it should consider that both of these are considered to be “safety currencies.”

Ultimately, that causes a lot of noise here so looking at this chart it is obvious that the volatility is going to continue to be a major influence, so it is difficult to trade this market for a bigger move until we get some type of clarity. I do not have clarity at this point, so it is short-term back-and-forth, probably in increments of 20 or even 30 pips. I would not put huge positions on here either.
