Trade Alert – Risk Takes A Bounce

As per the tweet last night – I went long several pairs with consideration of the large upward bounce in JPY and sell off in risk related currencies. AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY as well EUR/JPY CAD/JPY and CHF/JPY producing several hundred pips in profit overnight.

I will do this on occasion  - when I see an absolutely “puch you in the face” type trade opportunity. You may choose to follow – or not.

Again, based in the fundamentals – seeing yesterday’s AUD/JPY dip (around 4-500 pips) in the face of Japan’s massive QE program ( only just getting started ) it made perfect sense to get on the right side of that trade.

I’ve more than taken my 2% back from Japan after last weeks loss.

Kong feels better.

    Regarding your thesis on disturbances in the correlations, do you see the euro falling with the dollar?

  2. Trying to trade tomorrows possible correction in gbp/jpy. Took small short position. based on chart 30 min.

  3. No – as the two most widely held currencies on the planet – the move has to be inverse.—-keeping in mind that “trading flat” is also a market dynamic.

    One or the other may rise or fall considerably against other currencies – so yes – they can both fall. Of interst take a look at EUR/NZD or AUD – when “risk” is sold……EUR shoots for the moon here.
