Monthly chart showing where we are. Just recovered the 2008 losses. 20000 on the horizon?
I have also booked some of my profits in long Nikkei. But was parttly a regret trade as I had cut some longs at 17800. Didn't think Nikkei could take those out. Looks like I am seriously wrong now then Nikkei has roared past 18500. I trade currencies as well. But most of my profits are from trading the index now.
I see Nikkei strongly tied to it, so i'm not sure why you would have a discrepancy between them - especially on a strong indication of a bull flag. I usually give some room for foul play, so i assume a pullback may happen for DXY to flush out some and give a breather (as many things may also need to cool down, nikkei included). But i seen Yen break a bear flag as well, so im watching both closely
