Good morning traders.

With EUR/USD breaking out of channel resistance and reeking havoc on our shorts, this bout of risk trading does offer alternate opportunity over on USD/JPY.

Take a look at the 4 hourly chart below:

As I mentioned above, with resistance on EUR/USD breaking out, we’ve seen USD/JPY’s hold, and markets get back into correctly correlated sync with one another.

You can see the 4 hourly double top forming and price subsequently being rejected from the second touch of the level.

Zoom into the 15 minute chart…

Best of probabilities to you.
