GBPJPY vs SP500 -Daily - CRAZY Identical for more than a year

FX:GBPJPY   British Pound/Japanese Yen
403 3 5
Just as the AUDUSD             had a remarkable correlation that lasted many years, this correlation is the new, hot pair. Oddly enough, now I will feel compelled to watch this unusual pair and see what I can learn and derive from it's existence. By the way, I learned of this from a neighbor and I can't take credit for finding it but I'm happy to hear your thoughts on what it means and whether it will continue to correlate or not.

I'll call this a "long" position for GBPJPY             to catch up a little to SPY             . The SPY             is pushing new highs over these past few months while GBPJPY             is making sideways price action since Year-End 2013             .

There are notable differences in the charts and I hope that the markets don't keep just blindly following each other.

This also reminds me of AMZN             and AAPL             , right before they went different ways.

That's a nice correlation and you can also check CADJPY vs SP500..... Can be used as a leverage or hedging :-)

It's not just gbp/jpy, there are other yen pairs that are well correlated. It all started with the Japanesse monetary policy, when they started devaluating the yen. I guess the correlation can be explained by risk aversion and risk apetite.
There is a difference between a correlation and and two similar-looking up-trends. People see what they want to see. Japanese monetary policies on one side, QE on the other... A couple of matching dips out of a dozen don't mean a correlation...
