USD/JPY trades in the high-107-range

The US dollar has posted gains on Thursday, as USD/JPY trades in the high-107-range in the European session. The dollar has resumed its winning ways, gaining close to 200 points in the past week against the sagging yen. On the release front, Japanese Flash Manufacturing PMI climbed to 52.8 points.  In the US, Unemployment Claims rose to 284 thousand, much higher than the previous reading of 264 thousand. However, the four-week average, which is less volatile than the weekly release, dipped to 281,000, a 14-year low.
USD/JPY was flat in the Asian session but has posted strong gains in European trade, breaking above resistance at 107.68.
107.68 has reverted to a support level as the dollar shows strong gains. 106.85 is stronger.
108.58 is the next resistance line.
Current range: 107.68 to 108.58
USD/JPY ratio is showing gains in long positions on Thursday, continuing the trend seen a day earlier. This is consistent with the pair’s movement, as the dollar has posted strong gains. The ratio has a majority of long positions, indicative of trader bias towards the dollar continuing to move higher.

Stock trading book

As a frequent contributor to Futures Magazine, MoneyMorning, Traders Advantage and other top financial publications, I know from experience that stock trading offers enormous profit potential for traders if you have the right tools for success. But, each year, millions of aspiring stock traders still come to the stock market but still fail to achieve any meaningful success despite being armed with the latest indicators or some expensive stock trading system. There are two main reasons: One, they lack a proper foundation in the study of price action and, two, they lack a method to show them where to find trading opportunities and when to pull the trigger. Price action is the language of the market that is spoken to you each day through price charts and, if you understand what its trying to tell you, then you'll never lack for low-risk trades again. But, you also have to have a stock trading method that provides a set of rules to show you when a trade is setting up with the least amount of risk combined with the highest probability of success. Without understanding either of these concepts, you're chances are slim that you'll succeed. But, if you have the patience, drive, and discipline to apply a few simple rules along with sound fundamental and technical analysis, then the odds are on your side that you'll succeed. In Simple Stock Trading Formulas, you'll read about the role of both the stock exchanges and stocks themselves so that you understand how the game is played. Next, you'll learn how to "look under the hood" to find fundamentally sound stocks that have the highest chance of becoming a high-performer, avoiding the stagnant, lifeless stocks that are going nowhere. Then, you'll get to the meat of the book and get a in-depth breakdown on technical tools, price patterns, how to spot compelling technical criteria, mindset, and a set of rules-based stock trading strategies that work in any market condition. You'll also learn: • The nature of the market and how to use it to profit. • What stocks are and what is their purpose? • Why volatility frightens the majority of traders but how you can profit from it. • The dual relationship of price and volume. • What roles do stock exchanges play? • What key indicators to use to get into the market (and when to stay out). • The best price patterns to trade for consistent winners. • How to spot market reversals and how to profit from them. • What warning signs to watch for so that you don't get wiped out financially. • What 3 indicators form an unbeatable winning formula for trading. • How to use "Big Daddy" to always be on the right side of the trend. • What the only two types of price action are and how to profit with them. • How to spot turns in the market and how to use them to time your entries. • 7 step-by-step trading formulas to find winning trades in any market type. • Fundamental and technical formulas to rack up above-average returns.

RSI trading chart indicator

Sometime there as a problem with using the RSI in this manner is that in a strong uptrend the RSI will typically use forty as a support level.  And when price is in a strong downtrend, the RSI will use sixty as a resistance level.  many traders talk about using the RSI with those new parameters to identify some of those opportunities as they approach supply and demand levels. This is a good time to go long or short in a stock trade.
The best information traders can take from this is to understand there are more then one way to think trading the stock markets. Traders can keep an look on the news and normal trend analysis and sell near the low and buy near the high at support and resistance. Traders can watch the reality of how they make money buying and selling stocks.  Traders need to learn how to trade. many times you would start to think different because we all want to buy at low prices and sell at retail prices in every part of your trading. That is actually  how you need to think about the trading markets because the truth is, there is no difference between the proper buying and selling action you take when trading and the proper buying and selling action you take when buying and selling most of the different stocks.

Japanese yen is steady on Monday, as USD/JPY

The Japanese yen is steady on Monday, as USD/JPY trades just below the 107 line. It’s a quiet start to the week, with no US or Japanese releases on Monday. In Japan, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda reiterated the central bank’s policy stance.
USD/JPY ratio is showing little movement on Monday. This is not consistent with the pair’s movement, as the yen has posted gains against the dollar. The ratio has a majority of long positions, indicative of trader bias towards the dollar reversing direction and moving higher.
On Monday, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda stated that Japan’s economy continues to improve modestly, although consumer demand is down after the consumption tax hike in April. The BoJ would prefer to stay on the sidelines, but there has been talk that the central bank could step in with additional stimulus if the economy takes a turn for the worse. Such a move would weigh on the already weak Japanese yen.

Dollar up 0.2% against yen at Y106.50. Euro down 0.1% to $1.2795.

 USD this week's selloff in the dollar, investors of all stripes remain heavily positioned with bets on the greenback's rise. The buck may well see another push lower to reach some degree of equilibrium for the market. "Given the positioning, the dollar will weaken more on negative data surprises than it will strengthen on positive data surprises," says Mark McCormick, FX strategist at Credit Agricole. Also, voices from the Fed are becoming more dovish of late, so more investors will likely hesitate before putting on, or adding to, dollar-long positions over next two weeks until FOMC. Dollar up 0.2% against yen at Y106.50. Euro down 0.1% to $1.2795.
