What's With the Japanese Yen?

Currencies / Japanese Yen Sep 09, 2014 - 02:59 PM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski


The Yen has morphed into a different pattern than I had originally portrayed. Not that there weren’t clues already there, but the first Triangle formation threw me off, thinking that the decline in the Yen was complete on January 10, 2014. Usually Triangles occur in fourth waves. However, they also occur in B waves.

This explains the reason for two triangles in close proximity. The rule of alternation says that you cannot repeat the same Wave Structure twice in a row. However, the rule may not apply here, since the first Triangle was a Minor B Wave within an Intermediate Wave (A). The second Triangle Was an Intermediate Wave (B). Thus, the rule is bypassed, since we are dealing with two different degrees of waves.

You can see on the weekly chart that the target for this Intermediate Wave (C) of a Primary Wave [5] is at or near 92.50, not accounting for a throw-under. There may be a bounce back to the Daily Cycle Bottom at 95.45 before a final thrust to its target.

The next Cycle Pivot day is Thursday, September 11 (any significance here?). This matches up with the average Master Cycle low date, as well.

The Wave [5] decline may be the direct result of money printing by the Bank of Japan to offset the declining economic conditions , most recently exacerbated by the sales tax hike at the end of the first quarter.

This, in turn, has boosted the Yen carry trade. You can see that borrowing Yen and buying SPY (according to the Bank of Japan) has paid off…so far. But the Ending Diagonal is in throw-over and appears to be in its final throes.

The reversal of the Yen will have far-flung consequences. I have been saying for quite some time that when the reversal takes place, there will be a huge sucking sound coming out of equities.

Could it be that another 9-11 attack is in the works? I don’t know. It could be any number of things.

Meanwhile, here in the U.S. the SPX performance is being muted by a rising Dollar. Of the two Orthodox Broadening Tops, the smaller one is in agreement with the Ending Diagonal formation, which has a target of 1560.33.

We are awaiting a breakdown of the SPX below 1990.00 to kick off the Panic Cycle.

TNX finally broke above both the Head & Shoulders neckline and the prior Micro Wave b (false) breakout. Rates should continue to the Daily mid-Cycle resistance, currently at 26.37.

Things are beginning to heat up.
