Long EURJPY and long USDJPY

16.44 bst

The Yen pairs have broken out of their ranges and generated a long signal for me. Ideally I should wait for a retracement, but one cannot tell at the moment when the retracement will come and how deep or shallow it may go. Hence just take the trade and cover the potential retracement by setting an appropriate stop level.

Long $20/pip EURJPY at 132.61, SL at 131.60.

Long $30/pip USDJPY at 102.25, SL at 101.40.

    you have enormous stop losses and horrible entry points driven by emotion. tomorrow’s a big day. keep in mind may 22 is a big day for yen pairs. wish you well.

      Thanks for your comments Jared. In UJ I had planned entries at 101 / 100.80 but the price broke previous high before retracing lower. Same in EJ. I know entering after a break often looks like momentum chasing and it does require large stops, but it provides clear entry points, clear risk definition, even if the SL sometimes are very wide. The yen entries were not driven by emotion but due to break of last week’s highs. The recent trades in cable and EU have been somewhat emotion driven.
