Time To Go Long The Yen, A Banker Thinks So

Who's the more foolish; the fool or the fool who follows him?

Headline: Banker who called end of the 2015 dollar rally is telling clients to short the buck

A market analyst who was among the first to correctly predict the end of the 2014-2015 dollar rally is recommending that his clients once again short the dollar—this time against the yen.

Vasileios Gkionakis, head of currency research at UniCredit, Italy’s largest lender, is recommending that his clients short the dollar USDJPY, -0.12% at ¥113.50 with a target of ¥108 and a stop-loss above ¥115.75. Traders place a stop-loss order with their brokers to avoid booking excessive losses. When a stop-loss order is placed, the broker will automatically exit their clients’ position once the value of the asset or currency hits the assigned level.
