The USD/JPY pair has been trending sideways since mid-November, causing a great degree of whippiness in the signal. The preceding bull phase lasted nine U.S. market days and carried the price up a bare 0.3%.
The USD/MXN pair has been in a shallow downtrend since mid-2009, one so shallow it could be mistaken for a sideways trend by the careless chart-reader. The preceding bull phase lasted 11 U.S. trading days and carried the price up 0.3%.
The analysis uses the daily Person's Proprietary Signal, developed by John Person, and the weekly Person's Pivot, which he also developed.
These are black box signals -- the "proprietary" means that Mr. Person knows how they work under the hood, and I don't. But they have shown a fair degree of success in identifying good entry and exit points, and I find them useful.
On the glance, "pps open" means the price at the start of trading in the United States on the day the signal appeared.
