USDJPY Big Data Wed and Thur


Recommended Posts

BOJ policy decisions and data releases likely to have ever increasing impact on the Japanese bond and Index market with knock on impact for the Yen.

BOJ stimulation bond buying package gives BOJ "outsized impact on bond market".

"BOJ is top 10 shareholder in about 90% of Nikkei 225 companies".

If the economy does't improve BOJ sees it's only option for the future is to do MOAR!

Is this where the other Western economies are headed?

Thanks  I didn't know BoJ was such a big shareholder in the Nikkei, talk about propping up the markets is it almost China like...  When the music stops it will be carnage.  In Western markets I think traders will smell a rat more quickly than in Japan and increased stim may have a short term bounce affect but eventually people will start to realise that there is an underlying reason for all this stim that is not going away, namely no economic growth, and when they do...

My analysis suggests a surge against the Yen.  Can technical analysis predict what CBs are going to do?  Hardly but maybe it won't matter much what BoJ does this time if sentiment is against them even if they drop a nuclear bomb on the market wont that spook the **** out of everyone?  Perhaps that is where we are, or nearly?  It is this that will trigger the collapse of this CB induced Ponzi scheme...  Anyone buying shares now is just plain crazy (or has to because they are money managers after all, what else can they do...)

FWIW here is my latest position on USDJPY.  I am sticking to my previous big picture assessment that the USD will strengthen vs the Yen.  We have seen the pullback after the daily tramline break (too steep for a kiss back this time).  There have been a couple of hourly tramline breaks and kiss backs and I think we may well get another soon.


My approach here is to go Long on any kiss, with a close stop, and to hold a stop in order above last nights high in case of a near miss on the tram and rally away.

    • You get a 'vaccine passport' once you are vaccinated. You don't have to get one, you already have one if you had your vaccines. I don't mean covid vaccines, I mean any vaccine. That 'vaccine passport' has been already implemented for decades. It is the registry that any national health system has on your vaccines.  Unless you are an exotic animal that has been living under a rock during your life you must have taken a vaccine at some point in your life, otherwise you would be dead.  Here is a list for your education: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/diseases/forgot-14-diseases.html I am sure that you are vaccinated of at least 90% of that list.  So that vaccine passport is just what you already have, my dear, if you happen to live in Europe or the UK just go to the National Health app and click on 'Travel' , there you will see your 'vaccine passport' It is already implemented, I had to show it to fly twice this year in two different airports. 
    • Hi Guys, I have a doubt, when trading equities/options/futures, if a trader places a buy or sell order to a broker, it goes to an exchange and if someone is ready to buy or sell at the that price order gets matched and the order is filled. What happens when we are trading only CFD, are we trading against the broker, our order is filled by the broker (IG), meaning if I am buying some equity CFD so IG is selling that CFD? If that is the case, can the price be manipulated to kick out the trader ?   
    • “If you want your life to return to normal you will need a vaccine passport”  NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner says. Government blackmail is the new normal.  The race is on, can the govts of the western world force digital passports on everyone using covid as the excuse before people realise the vaccines don't work and actually make things worse? Immunization expert: 'Unvaccinated people are not dangerous; vaccinated people are dangerous for others' - America's Frontline Doctors (americasfrontlinedoctors.org)   The UK ‘Vaccination’ Programme. Part 1: Adverse Drug Reactions and Deaths – Architects for Social Housing (ASH) ...  the logical conclusion to be drawn from these figures (PHE), is that the COVID-19 ‘vaccines’ that have been injected into the arms of 48 million people in the UK make no difference to the health impact of SARS-CoV-2, the viral load or its infectiousness. ... Last week, PHE published its latest, 22nd technical briefing, under the same title, and the results of the UK ‘vaccination’ programme are even worse. ... these figures show that partial or full ‘vaccination’ has made no difference to ‘infection’ with SARS-CoV-2, or at least to receiving a positive RT-PCR test, and, in fact, that the percentage diagnosed with this method was increasing among the so-called ‘vaccinated’. The percentages get even worse, however, when we look at deaths within 28 days of a positive test. .
