Yen Draws Safe Haven Share

Yen strength is here to stay especially as the US dollar's safe-haven lustre is eroded by the worsening US data.

OK time for yen to make a big move appreciation is what breaking 86 will do the trick time for fresh round of deflation

Even though it's technically week, this could be the bottom, cause

it's going up not down Currently 87.26. Stress test should be OK and Markets

will run for a bit or at least relax.. Yen could go higher into low 90.

In case Equity Markets crash we could see 84 probably.

But this Crash/double deep talk was around for like 6 month already

mainly from the guys who missed the train :)

Hi Ashraf,

On the USD/JPY currency pair, I put the 55, 100 and the 200 moving averages and saw the the 55 day SMA had crossed both the 100 and 200 SMA which means that this is a dead(golden) cross and wanted to know your opinion on this.

Thanks,

Farzan

P.S. I remember asking you about the dead cross when you were in Toronto at Novatel Hotel.

Interesting how this Yen topic heading evolved! Since the early 90's I have observed the markets and all kinds of extremely strong opinions about them, reminiscent of some of what I have read on this thread. What I have seen is that the market tends to behave in ways that make the largest possible number of people look foolish You must have decisive opinions, but recognize that you are dealing with continually shifting energies and moods, sentiment can shift in a minute and there are only PROBABILITIES, not certainties. I have also observed that some of the worst traders are former lawyers, who have been trained their whole lives to argue, argue, and insist on being right, even while the market runs strongly in the other direction . . . One reason most traders lose money. It is much more about risk and money management than being right.
