This pair had just the one valid signal for the week, and here’s how it turned out:

USD/JPY enjoyed a bit of upside momentum after the long position was opened, but it wasn’t enough to make it to the target. It wasn’t long before price slid back to the relatively tight stop, yielding a 10-pip loss. The percentage gain/loss depends on how position sizes were calculated.
