Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time:USD/JPY Year-End Surprise?

With markets trending again (perhaps more importantly in the desired direction of the monetary authorities) there is a lot of excitement about a continuation of these trends into the end of the year. A so called “Santa Claus rally” so institutional managers can lock up performance fees. In the FX realm, Santa Claus is clearly focused on USD/JPY as I keep hearing of year-end targets of 125.00. Perhaps this year will be like all the rest, but I have a feeling it won’t. An abundance of key cyclical relationships in the yen all coincide in December (the first part of the month and the days before Christmas look the most significant). With sentiment towards the yen at some of the most extreme levels I have ever seen (JPY at single digit DSI on day, week, 2-week and 3-week time frames) USD/JPY is looking vulnerable to a decent shakeout next month. For the record, this year-end “surprise” would not be without precedent. Just take a look at the price action in USD/JPY from December of 2005 to see what can happen when the market as a whole is leaning the same way and looking for the same thing. Coincidentally 125.00 was a popular year-end Santa Claus rally target then too.
