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.

    • Great post... Inflation is less transient than central bankers hope. The current result is transient (they hope) stagflation. Reflationary trends are more likely than not, though the  general market correction that is being deferred once more, is likely over due come Q1 22....more likely before.  As for your clever strategy, respect. As a simple Oil and gas trader I judge different metrics (like actual physical supply, storage and expected and real demand) for example. Plus order flow is useful. Have a great day trading all. Finally getting round to booking some holiday time that's not in the UK...which is a good sign..  
    • In the news; - oh dear never mind, it's all good data;  'A Turkish Prof, Zafer Kurugöl has said on TV that they have "accidentally" vaccinated babies with covid vax (adult dosage) and will publish the results (of their accidental experiment). He was also member of the Scientific Committee at Pfizer's Scientific Research Competition.' Professore Notte Botta @note_bot_ Pfizer’in Bilimsel Araştırmaya ve Genç Araştırmacılara Desteği Devam Ediyor | Pfizer Türkiye     'Newly reported deaths in Hawaii have risen 1,740% in the past two months despite one of the longest mask mandates in the world & overwhelming compliance…so I have to ask once again why Ron DeSantis did not mandate double masking & spend more time promoting vaccinations there.'  IM @ianmSC         Cases in South Korea have been at record high levels for nearly 3 months now despite 99% mask compliance, mask mandates and fines for non-compliance, so it’s always nice to hear politicians and experts keep pushing more mask mandates & forcing masks on 2 year olds.  IM @ianmSC   .
