On the hourly chart the pair looks oversold and thus a slight rally could be seen in the short term.
I will take profits on my initial short CHF/JPY trade from May 2 for a profit of 1.3% (with the pair trading at 114.89 at the time of writing). My ‘one to watch’ idea from this week remains open, so effectively I now just have one short contract.
I feel lowering stops on this idea to 116.30 (from 117.10) seems prudent as well.
