Hi . It's the inverse correlation between a country's currency and the perceived value of their companies, a cheaper currency will boost exports which is good for companies. When the British pound goes down the FTSE goes up. When the Nikkei goes up the Yen goes down, so USDJPY will go up. A weak Yen verses a bullish dollar should equate a strong move up for USDJPY but Yellen's speech yesterday seems to have upset the dollar bulls as she left herself wriggle room for not raising interest rates on the 15th March if next weeks NFP is not up to scratch.

I have over simplified for the sake of clarity and deliberately left out such considerations as safe havens, bond yeilds, commodity reserves and worlds reserve currency (USD). Useful cutout and keep pic here.

Any thoughts on this weekends planned political events  and the effect on USDJPY?

 

"The Japanese PM dissolved the lower parliament on 28th September, initiating the process for the snap elections to be held on October 22nd. We believe that it is a move to secure a fresh mandate in the parliament after Mr. Abe’s association with a series of scandals over the summer. The approval rating for Abe’s government sunk to 29.9%, sliding below 30% for the first time, and his disapproval rating rose to 48.6% [according to a poll conducted by the Jiji news agency]. Japan has been stuck in an on-and-off cycle of deflation for two decades now and the election is an opportunity for the people to re-affirm their belief in the sustenance massive economic stimulus that drives the nation." Source.

 

I also think this is an interesting chart. USDJPY Vs Japan 225. A growing disparity and potentially an interesting trade opportunity?

HI   thanks for that, great article and very well researched. Very interesting conclusion and trade idea. I had noted the declining popularity of Abe's government so was a bit surprised Dailyfx reporting Abe expected to win by a landslide this morning but your source article agrees with that likelyhood.

 

So, after all that math :), in conclusion they expect Nikkei to rise pre-election (which it has) then dip post-election. Useful to bear in mind though the disparity you mention could well dampen any knock-on effect on usdjpy.

 

The usdjpy nikkei disparity is presumably, at least in part, a function of Trump's inability to push reforms through congress. The bill that was past yesterday is reported to decrease the Democrat party's ability to hinder progress on planed tax reform which has weighed on the dollar (and so advantaged the yen). Progress from here should reverse that and so bring yen and nikkei back into closer (inverse) alignment meaning a rise in usdjpy for the longer-term.

 

Always interesting analysing the inter-connectedness of the markets.

NZD popular for carry Trade due to interest Rate, when there is appetite for risk NZD appreciates with good Correlation to Global Equity Markets. However Gold often Depreciates when there is appetite for Risk, perhaps keep this cross current in mind when using the gold to NZD Correlation.

You have made about 10 posts of biases  and beliefs about usdjpy, it is all subjective narratives .The simple concise narrative is the  USDJPY  is moving like all the dollar constituents, as the evidence on this chart shows on eurusd, gbp/usd and usdjpy.

If any of these biases are relevant, they should be covered by the chart and trading system.Adding biases and beliefs will destroy traders.

 

Most people are not successful when it comes to trading. Why?

I can answer that question on a number of levels. At the most basic level, people must trade by processing information. Unfortunately, we're not very efficient information processors. We have a lot of biases which enter into trading decisions.

Keep your trading system simple stupid K I S S

 

If boj, fed , nzd  or any other beliefs of potential gambler's fallacies , is included in trading, most traders will mess up and lose.

The bias is relevant precisely because it is very clear on the charts in 3 distinct time frames. Pointing this out to any who have not seen it will aid their trading by discouraging them from trading against the trend as your 'systems' regularly do as I have pointed out many times over many months.

 

That is 'keeping it simple', as compared to your K.I.S.S. 'system' as displayed in the chart below.

I was pointing out, there is too much noise, it is not necessary for decision making.It is like a person driving a car , and a back seat driver talking, similar to a trader trying to trade with all unnecessary information.

I am just saying all these other analysis and beliefs are not necessary.A trader can see everything necessary on the chart, sometimes there are unannounced decisions statements from central banks, so these should be in the trading system.

usdjpy still deciding on range bottom, 108.27 (orange) or 107.31 (red).  Interestingly retail started to go majority long way back around the 7th Jan (near top) and now longs are 74% of clients with a position. I guess any stop hunters will know where to aim.

 

Daily chart.

    • Of course, the CEO is important, but today the role of the media is huge.  CZ has been known since 2017, but no one knows Richard Teng now. Even if a survey was conducted, Binance's CEO would still be defined as CZ by people.  Stock market confidence comes first. This is why Binance's SAFU security fund stands out and today Binance has 193 million users.
    • “FOMO” is the abbreviation of the initials of the words Fear of Missing Out in English. The English expression Fomo means "fear of missing an opportunity". “FOMO”, which we frequently encounter in the cryptocurrency world, is a term used to avoid regret. People who invest in cryptocurrencies have experienced this fear at least once. This effect affects everyone, from professionals to amateur helpers. To the question of what is fomo in the stock market, fomo is related to social media, stock market, cryptocurrency world, etc. We must say that it has various effects in various fields. In the cryptocurrency world, buying and selling transactions continue 24/7. Increases and decreases may continue at any time of the day. There are some factors that cause the FOMO effect in the cryptocurrency exchange. These factors; Greed Anxiety Impatience It can be listed as excitement. Investors watching the cryptocurrency they want to invest in are waiting for a decline opportunity. Sudden changes in opportunities in the cryptocurrency world cause investors to change their decisions. Investors who see opportunities increase are disappointed when positions are opened in a hurry and declines begin. In 2017, a recent example of FOMO, investors bought cryptocurrencies at high prices and incurred losses. Those who bought crypto currencies in large amounts experienced losses. The Fomo effect also has an individual nature. Individuals may experience the fomo effect for their personal investments. Fomo is not just a mass urge. FOMO occurs as emotional behavior rather than rational thoughts. One of the simplest examples is that it quickly pushes investors to the thought that motivates the person, such as "those who have cryptocurrency live a luxurious life." FOMO, which pushes towards irrational behavior, psychologically causes rapid action. In order to avoid losses, investments are made based on concrete information and graphics, not on attractive stocks. How to Deal with the Feeling of Fomo? People who make their own plans and research the markets they will enter in advance become conscious and follow the markets. Improving themselves, exploring hobbies, and becoming calm will reduce the effects of fomo. Balancing the fomo causes you to buy cryptocurrencies, not to make hasty decisions, and to perceive what is happening around you as it is. Cryptocurrency buyers need to be able to make rational decisions. Investments may take shape with FOMO disease. While trying to take advantage of the opportunities offered by other investors, you may encounter large losses. Decisions made with emotional motivation lie behind untimely investments. Fear of Missing Out on High Earnings It is the feeling felt by investors who rush to purchase the asset for fear of missing a profit opportunity.  When there are strong emotions, too many people have FOMO, which can cause parabolic price movements. We should mention that crypto money fomo causes great losses.  Investors competing for seats and switching from one asset to another often signals that the fomo effect is increasing. Extreme market conditions can change the general rules of the market. Buying cryptocurrencies based solely on increasing prices without doing research, reading charts, or technical analysis is an indication that we are caught up in FOMO.
