Before I start posting the Yen pairs I first want to go back to the Dollar pairs, specifically the commodity currencies vs. the Dollar. Just to recap, as per the analysis I have posted thus far we have the Dollar Index indicating possible Dollar strength due to price opening at MM2 which is supported by EURUSD and Gold both opening at MM3 and then we also have Copper and WTI opening at MM3. That’s a lot of evidence pointing in the direction of risk off as we head into 2018. Although we can go further and investigate if the commodity currencies support our current hypothesis. We’ll take a look at the Aussie first then the Kiwi then Cad and then Zar (we need to take Platinum into consideration for Zar, I’ll post that next. Side note – if you can get your hands on ZARJPY and do some analysis with some predicted monthly’s and weekly’s, a weak Zar against a strong Yen could be a great trade. I don’t have ZARJPY so I have not done the analysis so you would have to check it out). I am posting all four pairs in this post to save you time dear reader.
