Signals For Correction – What Do I See?

With more than a handful of general indicators already suggesting “a top”  – it’s important for investors to understand what “exactly” is happening. And I don’t mean with the “price” of U.S stocks” – I mean with investor sentiment and physcology.

You don’t really want to hear this from me….(not here…not now – with your neighbor and half the guys you know down at the pub all “ranting n raving” about how much money they’re making in the market) as the temptation to “jump in with reckless abandon” is near impossible to resist.

They “say” they’ve been making money but the sad fact is…..mindless bulls are now dropping like flies, with nothing more to go on that “the Fed’s got your back”. Hot shot stock traders caught flat footed, completely oblivious to the movements in currency markets are “feeling some serious pain” as “the grind across the top” takes no prisoners.

It won’t be long now, as everything I track “other” than the misguided euphoria playing out in U.S equities already has me on the move.

If you “don’t know” what I’m looking at by now “from a currency perspective”  – I encourage you to give it a shot. It’s all here.

What do I see – that perhaps you don’t?

      Interesting how the scales tip as…..

      AUD been falling here as “risk rises” ( or at least as seen via SPY ).

      I’m focused on JPY here short term with finger on the buttons as always.

      AUD / USD looks good for a short term bounce for sure….”risk on though??”

      Not so sure.

    JPY strength across the board as money flows back into Japan out of US equities. I think your looking at this perhaps still as a possible trading plan? Or in other words a “Risk off trade” withthe yen being the main Safety?

    AUDUSD long here? Seriously? If there is a bounce today, it’s only because the US are off. USD is going north I think.

    The majority of your flock doesn’t see what you see matey, it’s why we read every word you write, it’s why you have an avid following and it’s why I only need 2 indicators. Kong and the RSI 😉

    PS. I gave it a shot like you said,
    Do you see daily $index under lots of downward pressure.
    Do you see the daily emini s&p 500 with a rough double top with failing volumes?
    Do you see the commodity price index heading north out of the oversold zone.
    Have I interpreted this as an investor confidence issue correctly with all that’s being going on. Risk off to follow?
    Your thoughts on my analysis would be greatly appreciated Kong as it’s the first time I’ve “had a go” at connecting the dots.
    Many thanks.

      Fantastic Andrew, lets have a look.

      1.$ Index – After this huge move up to 81.50 the weekly trendline / downward action still intact, and daily could easily roll over soon. Take note of the 200 MA on that daily 81.50 to 8175 area…..a tough nut to crack.

      2. SP 500 certainly “pushing the limits” up here on “continued low volume and now “diverging RSI” where price reamins about the same, but the indicator bumps lower each time.

      3.Commods hit so hard over the past year, with very little liklihood of much more downside ( zooming out to a weekly chart in $CRB ) a massive double bottom would be there at 270 area.

      Bang on, bang on and bang on for 3 out of 3 – Bravo!

      So all things said…..could we wrap our heads around the general idea that the USD heads for the toilet, as the price of things ( commods ) inversely move higher…and those who choose to grind it out in equities can zig / zag / push / pull / as stocks continue to eat people’s accounts for breakfast for the next few months ( with a significant downward bias )? Then announcement of further QE ( maybe a doubling ) with a corresponding bounce in equities / risk before rolling over into full blown panic late 2014 – into 2015?

      Just thinkin out loud.

      Great work man.

        Thanks mate you’ve made my day. I’m buzzing.

          If you aren’t already ( and for fun ) grab a chart of the Nikkei ( futures symbol /NKD ) grab a crayola and get a trendline drawn under the lows on daily…or even zoom and get it on 4H.

          I’d say the dip / low 3 days ago breached that..and now a lil “back test” up from below?

          Zooming out further…..the high in May ( my top ) and the subsequent “grind ever since”.

          Yes it looks like a symetrical triangle but for it to resolve upward?? I dunno…..

    Come on Yen strength, I want to buy the USD/JPY on the cheap for a longer-term trade. Still patiently waiting.

    Aside from that, the EM’s are getting beat to hell and are looking attractive for those brave enough to give up some margin and hold through the storm until we have confirmation the US won’t taper in December. But who knows, maybe they will. Either way, I’ll be collecting my high yield everyday and building a medium term position.

    • Forex Kong November 11, 2013 / 6:48 pm

      Level headed David – looking good.

      Ya common JPY! I want long term buy n hold USD/JPY too!

      It will come, I’m confident of that.

      Interesting the news flow as of late being that of “EU now set to join currency war etc”….as well I’m quite confident Japan will INCREASE QE in April so…..the U.S will need to “stay in the game” via further easing too.

      I can’t predict what they “say they’ll do” but… looking ahead I can’t see any other option than to dramatically increase QE.

      Keee on rockin man!
