Still Holding USDJPY: Fundamentals In Tact: Patience is Key!

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen
239 7 12
Please see my trade in USDJPY             from the link below.

My I internet was down and I also had to rewrite this over again. Now, it is shortened.

I've been in this trade for about one month now. It is hard to do as many gamble and twittle their fingers and push buy and sell buttons with every wind of momentum, but TRUE trend that last are created by economic-fundamental data; the same with reversals. I intend to align myself with the big banks.


The Fed remains hawkish, so I remain hawkish: the US Fed's Mester said, "Inflation will gradually increase towards 2 percent target" and that "sometimes being prudent means INCREASING rates."

Bullish Catalysts For Tommorrow:
2:35am New York time - BOJ Kuroda Speaks (Desiring that he remain Bearish
8:30am New York Time - USA Final GDP q/q and Unemployment Claims (Desiring that the data is bullish )
4pm New York Time - Fed chair Yellen Speaks (Desiring that she remains bullish )

I go forward with an open mind, looking for further evidence for the bullish case of holding the dollar!
Comment: some nice volume divergence here again:

Comment: UPDATE:
Today's September 29, 2016 data releases for Japan supports our case to hold the dollar and sell the Japanese Yen, and it gives us economic-fundamental EVIDENCE that Japan will have to lower rates even further to save their economy:
Japan Household Spending y/y = -4.6%
Tokyo Core CPI y/y = -0.5%
Japan National Core CPI y/y = -0.5%
Japan Unemployment Rate = 3.1%

So, I am still holding on to USDJPY for the long haul.
Risks: global calamity or some bad news in the world has bed causing people to flee to Japan as a safe haven. So, those shocks will hurt how USDJPY will appreciate over time.
Comment: USDJPY funnel:
Comment: Holding on:

Comment: Here is your zoomed out view. If USDJPY falls, I have orders at 100.13. Stop is below 95.00 Target is 114. That is a 500 pip stop for a 1400 pip target. Ending Q4 with a mighty, MIGHTY, roar! Its time for the US Dollar to rally. OK, to be objective, I am looking at the US data closely and I like what I see. The data must keep coming out good, and the data for the JPY must keep coming out bad. It is that simple. Dollar, rally on!

Comment: If we can get pass 104 in a strong way with more transactions from institutions, then, enjoy the ride:
Comment: Investors positioning themselves ahead of US GDP:
Comment: read update
Comment: Advance GDP q/q data is coming out in a few hours. It is expected to grow at 2.5%, more than the previous 1.4%. If that happens, expect a big dollar rally. The fed will need to raise rate the next day (joking).

What has me a little concerned is that the GDP coming out won't reflect this months amazing retail sales data for the US economy. Retail sales does play a big chuck of the GDP economic pie. And last month, retail sales were -0.2%, so this may effect the GDP; however, going forward, we know that we have investment demand, and with the US election coming up (given that Hillary Clinton stands a chance at winning), I remain confident in the dollar, and I believe that a pullback will cause investors to buy at falling and bargain prices.

So, I will have to read the data coming out and break down the GDP to make sense of it all, and then make an informed decision about it, taking into account our quarterly view. We may in the end just ignore any bad number and look at other economic points that are good for the GDP a month or two from nice, like this months retail sales.

Going in with an open mind! Happy Halloween!
Comment: An investigation was opened up on Hillary Clinton, which is spooking the market right now. Hillary cannot reply because her plane doesn't have wifi.

Yes, this it interesting. What a wonderful way to detect the MOOD of the market visually with reality! :) I like it!

It is not so perfect, especially back in 2008 on the daily chart and QE time, when both the dollar and gold moved up together (an anomaly). The correlation may unwind at certain times. Makes sense on whole though:

Gold is in the background.
