USD/JPY 6 month Daily Chart
-I expect to see a retest of 83.75 levels, possibly as low as 83.25
-The BOJ cannot solely rely on tough talk to weaken the Yen, they must show & prove intervention to the market
-Momentum and Volatility remain flat; no reason to get long or short until a catalyst appears
-The 20 day SMA will serve as short-term resistance; 85.75-86.25
-RSI resistance at 55 levels remains firm
-Don't discount strong economic data; Unemployment sits at 5.3% and a Current Account Surplus is 3.3% of GDP.
Trade: I will get long once I see a retest of 83.75 lows. The BOJ will intervene through Quantitative Easing policies in order to allow the exchange rate to bounce to the upside. Once long, I'm looking for 800-1000 pips to the upside.
VIX 6 month Daily
-200 Day SMA has held as a floor since the 'Flash Crash'
-The 20 day SMA is about to cross the 50 day
-RSI is poised to break through 60 and test 70 overbought levels last seen in May
-Momentum has plenty of room up to 2.5
-As long as money continues to flow out of Equities into Bonds, volatility will persist
SPX 6 month Daily
-A head and shoulders reversal pattern is well underway
-RSI failed at 50 and will go low until it tests oversold territory at 30
-Momentum topped out and has plenty of room to the downside
-The 20 day SMA will converge with the 50 day SMA in the next couple of trading sessions
-The above chart supplements the VIX story
-This week Consumer Sentiment, China PMI, Euro Zone PMI, U.S. ISM, and NFP take the market sentiment spotlight
Trade: Short SPX till 1000. Look for short-covering/a relief rally before entry. ES Mini Futures are a great place to start. Also, the ProShares UltraShort S&P500 ETF SDS is another way to double down on your bets.
