FOREX Trading: USD/JPY Ending Year at Channel and Fibonacci Confluence

USDJPY - The long term USDJPY inverse head and shoulders breakout the week that ended 12/14 has led to immediate gains. The traditional measuring technique yields an objective of about 9362.

Keep an eye on the AUDJPY. As focused on last week, FX risk barometers are not confirming strength in equity risk barometers. A view at the separate components makes the case for a sharp decline in the cross as well. Former AUDUSD support is serving as resistance at 10475 and the USDJPY is reacting at the HUGE 7960 level. 7960 is defined by the 61.
