Last week, the BOJ surprised markets by holding off on more stimulus. But it also gave us a good chance to make some quick profits in the market.

To be more precise, it put 297 pips of profit right into our pockets.

Here is what led up to the trade, and the thought process behind it:

Next week, in my free workshop, I will be sharing more about this trade and price action strategies, and why it is the only tool used by all professional traders worldwide.

This morning, the BOJ (Bank of Japan) surprised markets by adopting negative interest rates.

BUT WAS IT REALLY A SURPRISE?

Well, to be honest, the news indeed was a surprise, but the direction that the Yen was going to take was no that surprising. This was because the price was leading the news, and we had already positioned ourselves beforehand for this move by sticking to our rules and applying the correct setups for such a market.

Hence it was no surprise when the new broke that I made S$4,866 (US$3410) profits from this move alone, from my long positions in USD/JPY, GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY, which gave me a net short exposure to the Yen.

In the Synapse Network, most of us took the same positions, but there were also some independent traders who used different pairs to get short exposure to the Yen. Either way, the results will not differ much.
