Is USDJPY going to repeat that same price action?

We can see from USDJPY chart that price action so far this year is a rerun of high-consolidate-breakout-throwback sequence that played between late 2013 to Q3-2014. That previous 52-week high is going to play an important role.

  2. It went into consolidation mode that lasted for months.
  3. 2013 high was broken in September.
  4. Rally was terminated by the high of a parallel channel drawn from price lows.
  5. Price promptly did a throwback to find support back at 105.
  6. Fast forward we see the price action repeat as USDJPY sets trading high in December 2014 at 121.85.
  7. Multi-month consolidation mode.
  8. Breakout.
