Trade Recommendation: USDJPY

With the price trading above the Daily Pivot Range (blue dots) and the 3 Day Rolling Pivot Range (RPR) the bias is clearly to the upside. These levels provide the near term key support range.

With the Daily Pivot Moving Averages (red, yellow, white lines) turning upward this is further confirmation of the upward bias.

The action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the market trades through the recent swing high resistance. This will confirm the market may move higher.

Note: This recommendation is good until the end of the session. If triggered, look for the trade to play out over a period of 24-36 hours and if no significant move after 3 hours, exit the trade.

Entry Price: 106.950
Stop Loss: 106.340
Profit Targets: First profit target 107.590. Second profit target is 107.870. Once first profit target is reached, bring stop loss to breakeven, then trail a stop loss on remaining position 15-20 pips behind to safeguard profits or until second profit target is hit.
