Entry signals on USDJPY

The USDJPY is flashing two entry signals over the weekend.


Signal #1. Friday's daily range is less than 50% of ATR(14). I'll be placing pending shorts and longs on the break of the high or low on Monday morning. 2:1 R:R.
Signal #2. ADX(14) has fallen below 18. The USDJPY has been ranging for some time, but it's not near the recent upper or lower fractals, so it may take a few more days to trigger an entry.
But take note of the three candles highlighted in yellow. Their range was less than 50% ATR(14) and would've provided a nice profit at 2:1 R:R. I traded the last highlighted candle and pocketed some profit before the day ended.
