Dollar in Danger of Major Break versus Japanese Yen



USDJPY -Forex trading crowd remain heavily long the Dollar versus the Japanese Yen as it consolidates near critical levels. The next move may prove decisive as sentiment and price near extremes.



Trade Implications - JPY Pairs: Last week we wrote in favor of getting long USDJPY against the lows as extremely low forex volatility combined with one-sided sentiment to favor a bounce. Yet the Dollar's failure to bounce significantly off of key lows warns of a potential breakdown. A break below 101.35 would likely invite larger declines--in which case we would favor going against the crowd and selling into USDJPY losses.
