Could USD/JPY go into Freefall?

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2017 Jul 28, 2017 - 01:58 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

SPX futures are down, but have not exceeded yesterday’s intraday low.

Today being Friday, there may be an effort to keep the decline from going too low. That suggests a probable bounce at Short-term support at 2457.17 to rally back to breakeven by the end of the day. Should this take place, it may offer another short entry opportunity by the end of the day. But this is only one outcome out of several possible scenarios. A second scenario may be an immediate launch into a Wave three scenario with a minimum 8-12% decline in the next three days. Yesterday may have been day one of a 4.3-day panic Cycle.


ZeroHedge reports, “S&P futures have tracked both European and Asian markets lower, which were dragged down by the big EPS miss and guidance cut reported by Amazon on Thursday. Meanwhile, the pounding of the dollar has resumed with the euro and sterling strengthening against the dollar due to renewed political concerns after this morning's stunning failure by the Senate GOP to pass a "skinny" Obamacare repeal after John McCain sided with democrats.”

The NDX futures challenged it intraday low, but did not exceed it. NDX has a similar probable path of testing Sort-term support at 5842.42 before a bounce that may allow an aggressive short entry position.

Bloomberg has a video report on yesterday’s Amazon Q2 earnings.

VIX futures are higher, having exceeded it 2 hour mid-Cycle resistance at 10.46. The Cycles Model suggests a probable probe to the Cycle Top at 12.04 to complete Wave 1, then a pullback to mid-Cycle support for another long entry for the VIX ETFs.

The NYSE Hi-Lo Index closed at 139 yesterday, not far from the mid-cycle support found at 106.96. A close beneath that level may enhance the VIX aggressive sell signal. The Hi-Lo confirmation may come below -15.00, should it happen today.

USD made a new low yesterday, confirming my analysis of an extension that may find its final low either today or Tuesday. Both days are strong pivot days. The price target may still remain at 92.65, but an extension until Tuesday may take the USD considerably lower. I have already suggested taking profits on short positions with only aggressive investors staying for the final low.

Sir John Templeton (with whom I had several valuable conversations) was asked why he always sold too soon. His smiling answer was, “I always leave a bit of profit for the next person.”

USD/JPY just took a nosedive through the Head & Shoulders neckline in the premarket this morning. This suggests something more serious may be taking place behind the scenes. It is in the window for the next Master Cycle low. This window could easily extend to next Tuesday, as I have indicated earlier. The USD/JPY target appears to be its Cycle Bottom support at 108.25, where it may bounce to retest the neckline. However, being a Wave 3 of (3), it may just go into freefall to meet the Head & shoulders target.

Stay tuned!

Regards,

Tony
