Finally! Something of significance!
If you take a look at two pairs such as GBP/JPY as well GBP/USD as a “control” – you’ll see that over the past few days of general GBP strength “both pairs” have been moving higher essentially ruling out any real movement in either JPY or USD.
Zooming in closer and taking a look at each of these pairs on much smaller time frames ( take the 15 minute for example ) you’ll blatantly see the “post Fed minutes” move has GBP/USD pushing higher and GBP/JPY falling off a small cliff.
THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO SEE! ( Yoda may not ).
Suggestion that both USD as well JPY are finally moving “regardless of the currency they are pitted against”.
Obviously the same thing can be seen just taking a look at USD/JPY as a pair unto itself but….in this case ( looking wider at many pairs ) we see clear suggestion that USD and JPY are moving ( in opposite directions) to a much larger degree.
The Nikkei has also taken quite a “fast dip” here post Fed minutes so it’s pretty fair to say that markets aren’t particularly pleased with “something”.
Any bets on where The SP 500 and The Canadian TSX are likely headed next?
