USDJPY

Agree and I feel it is likely to break back into a final rally leg to match stocks and Oil until the tops on the latter 2.

Yen fly in the Stocks ointment.  Looks like this pair is set for at least a retrace, which could spell another leg down or support retest for stocks...

USDJPY seems to be intent of retracing at the moment.  Downward pressure on stocks today?

EUR and GBP vs USD appear to be going to projection just now but next week will be crucial I feel to deciding it.  Regarding the Yen, I am not trading it right now but am using it as a correlation market with Stocks, I am seeing USDJPY moving largely in sync with stocks (not an exact match of course and different strengths but directional decent for now - don't expect that to last long term though).

In line with my short term projection for stocks I see USDJPY also retracing.  This market is trading in either a rally Channel or Triangle formation for price action on the Daily Chart, both are valid for now.  I could see a retrace back to the 4 Hourly chart recent down-sloping Triangle (Pennant?) breakout OR back to the support Daily chart lines and then rallying.  This would align to a Stocks move of a similar nature.  If this market does breakout into a rally though it could signal similar on stocks and Nikkei would be the one to assess as regards this overnight tonight.  All very ST right now so prone to go either way so staying on the sidelines to watch this one and stocks simultaneously.

      Markets trade-off Friday overhang: Markets traded in something of a vacuum Monday. The themes driving price action were more-or-less those that had determined activity to end last week. The effects of this were pronounced in the Asian session, but much less so in Europe and North America. It stands to reason: Asian markets were still to digest Friday night’s abysmal European PMI figures. That data’s impact is still rippling through the market. Anxieties about global growth and the likelihood for a global recession is the topic of the day. But the material losses stemming from these concerns, though broad-based, have been limited overnight. Wall Street is down but bouncing; European stocks were down; while futures contracts for Asian markets are mixed.

      Risk-off generally prevails: Fear is demonstrably higher. On balance, safety was generally sought on Monday. In something of a bittersweet development, the VIX has pulled of its lows, to trade above 16, as traders reprice volatility and risk. In the broader G10 currency complex, the Yen has been led the pack, though its rally has steadied, and it is currently shuffling around the 110-handle. Investment grade credit spreads have widened notably, as speculation about slower growth has fanned-fear regarding the massive US corporate debt burden. And finally, the overnight-drop in the US Dollar, combined with the ubiquitous disappearance of safe-yielding assets the world-over, has pushed gold prices to $US1322 per ounce.
