the current market conditions and the AUDJPY
folks, this is not a “I told you so” blog or any of that because I have no idea what’s going to happen from one minute to the next in the market. just look for patterns and then “IF-THEN” the resulting move if the pattern works or doesn’t to manage risk … seriously.
but I did want to spend just a little bit of time on the PATTERN that appeared on the AUDJPY back in November 2014. Yes, almost a year ago.
first off – here’s the foot stomp – GO BACK AND LOOK AT LONG TERM CHARTS and, obtw, take all of the indicators and oscillators and all that other useless garbage off the chart and look for PATTERNS and MEASURED MOVES. Once you find them, then throw all the indicators you want onto the chart … it’s like using steak sauce on a perfectly grilled steak.
anyway – look at the PERFECT repeat of the pattern in 2007-2008 on the AUDJPY:
here’s the result:
Why is this important to the US Equity Market? Here’s a chart showing the $NYA overlaid on the AUDJPY. Note the close correlation that occurred in the early 2000’s. Since then it’s been highly correlated.
So, is the “correction” in the AUDJPY and the EQUITY markets over? Using Fundamentals (which I don’t) I can tell you I don’t have a clue. However, we do have a PATTERN that is crucial to the overall direction of the equity markets.
so here we go …
IF the AUDJPY can stay above the crucial 81.90 level THEN equity markets should rally.
IF AUDJPY loses this level (81.90) THEN equity markets will continue to slide lower.
NOTE: the yellow boxed area contains ALL of the current AUDJPY moves. It’s also a region of 4 years of resistance. Note, the red trend line coming from the Jul 2011 top into current market price. We spiked thru it but are still above it – watch that closely.
thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions.
rock on, ok?
