USD/JPY short-term price trend

Short-term USD/JPY technical analysis highlights that the pair has a bearish bias while the price trades below the 107.50 level. 

A bearish head-and-shoulders pattern has formed across the lower time frames, with a sizable downside potential.

USD/JPY technical analysis

The neckline of the bearish head-and-shoulders pattern is located around the 106.80 support level. 

Weakness under the 106.80 level is likely to trigger technical selling towards the 106 support region, and possibly the 105.50 level.

USD/JPY technical summary

USD/JPY analysis highlights that the pair appears bearish over the short and medium-term horizon. Weakness under the 106.80 level should trigger heavy technical selling.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
