Looking to build a long AUD/JPY position, but going short first by Sam Eder

I’m looking to build a long-term bullish position on the AUD/JPY. In saying that the market has given me an opportunity to go short first with a good risk/reward ratio.

I have gone short at 95.059 and will be looking to buy back at a larger size when I see a bullish reversal.

Reasons for the trade:

  • I am long term bullish AUD/JPY so if I can get some short term profits I can build a bigger position.
  • Further to Sean Lee’s post the AUD/USD pair is likely to range trade this week (meaning the crosses may too, giving me an opportunity to trade the sideways market type).
  • Our signal provider 888 is short USD/JPY,  which is supportive of the sell AUD/JPY trade.

Risk management

  • Stop is at 95.29
  • If I see a reversal I will quickly take any profits or get out.
