A double top formation was formed within a major resistance zone, giving more than enough reason that the price will fall.
In M15 chart, the price has failed to break beyond the resistance zone and fell to the bottom of the zone and pulled back for a better price to sell.
Probably the best time to have no fundamental reason to sway the currency in any direction. In any case, USDJPY is pretty overbought and it is hard not to expect some strong resistance at the current major resistance zone.
Short with 1/2 risk and wait for a minor retracement to enter the remaining half risk.
Stop loss set at 22 pips above the double top formation.
Look for taking profit when the price reaches the neckline of the double top at 102.85, then wait for a retracement to short again, aiming at 101.70.
