The NFPs specific throw out of a red herring, its strength observed pairs whipsawing away from trend and did in fact knock out a former trade idea in USD/JPY by hitting on our stop.

The USD, in the marketplace standpoint anyhow, is confronting in a very dovish setup; and that’s despite last week’s powerful non-farm payrolls (NFP).
