My trading focus remains on the Yen crosses. That’s where the action is so that’s where I’ll play. By any measure-COT, RSI, difference from major moving averages (called the disparity index)-Yen crosses are insanely overbought which raises the risk of ‘snapback’ much like a rubber band that has been stretched too far.
The USDJPY has slipped below 8700 and a drop below yesterday’s 8650 low would create an outside day and present a short opportunity against the high. Initial support is 8565 but a return to 8420/60 (breakout level) isn’t out of the question.
