USD/JPY Stalls While Nikkei 225 Advances; One Trend Likely Reverses

After a series of smaller degree 1-2 Elliott Wave advances, the USD/JPY up trend has stalled at a resistance trend line. The wave picture previously painted is still technically bullish though the inability for USD/JPY accelerate higher is concerning.

One thing is obvious, downward moves in USD/JPY are carving in three waves while larger advances are impulsive. This implies that regardless of what the near term Elliott Wave pattern is, the longer term pattern is bullish and could be at the beginning edges of a larger advance.

USD/JPY Stalls While Nikkei 225 Advances; One Trend Likely Reverses

A correlation we have been keeping an eye on is USD/JPY versus Nikkei 225. We can see a historical relationship occurring between the two markets. Of late, Nikkei has been cranking higher to levels not seen in 21 years while USD/JPY cannot break recent highs.

If this correlation moves back into favor, then it suggests one of these markets may play ‘catch up’ to the other. That would imply USD/JPY reverses its recent range and cranks higher to ‘catch up’ to Nikkei. Alternatively, Nikkei may reverse lower and underperform against USD/JPY.
