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.

Where is Boe or Boj  or Nzd on my charts?

 

I don't need to add noise about pigs flying on my charts , the charts i.e road map  does the analysis, the road map is clear .There are no pigs flying on it.

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.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
