John Noyce Is First With Technical USDJPY Observations: "If The Down Move Continues, 71.70 Is Next"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Goldman's John Noyce is the first FX technician with a proposed take on tonight's stunning developments. Keep in mind, he, like everyone else is in uncharted (pardon the pun) territory.

Quick JPY Charts - Wednesday 16th March 2011

There are two ways of arriving at a downside target of 77.75-77.56;

  • An equal size pip drop from the June ’07 high to that from the August ’98 high to the November ’99 low would target 77.75
  • The extension target of the triangle which formed from 1st November ’11 to 15th March comes in at 77.56

The market has been below this region intraday, but, the NY 5pm close was at 77.90 according to the EBS data we use. If we were able to stabilise around 77.75-77.56 you could argue that the last part of the drop was set in an extreme situation with poor liquidity etc. definitely something to watch closely. Not to say the call was for a move this sharp in the first place, but with the help of hindsight on two counts you could argue “target met”.

 ..If.. the down move does continue the next really clean level is the actual parallel channel support off the August ’98 high which comes in at 71.70 on the linear scale chart.

 you posted before I got a chance; I haven't looked at recent prices; but I was going to say; this is very much like a squeeze on the shorts in futures; it doesn't last very long and countervailing forces come into play; disagreeing with Mr. whosis; here. Nice chart, but poor logic. the only thing you can do by trend following is get poor; you have to be a counter-puncher.

Can we logically conclude that this has a serious chance of actually trip up the derivative world and the treasury market ?

I mean, these people have no power, the plants are a write-off.

I have around 60,000 in margin that I could blow on physical gold tomorrow if I knew...Because the Bank of Montreal got bailed out the first time, so my guess is it will go down this time too.

JPY is around 14% of the Dollar Index . . . a down move to JPY-USD 71 would be enough to take 2-3 points off that. A lot of guys are also looking at 71-72 as a critical level for DXY as well before sending dollar holders into panic. I guess that leaves the Euro (58%) and where EUR goes from here.

Who would have thunk it.. An Earthquake in Japan causes the Yen to rise and the USD to fall below weekly support (trend line) causing a possible follow through and Dollar sell-off. Good grief..

Maybe we will hear some jaw boning about the PIIGS and lift the USD up.. :)

The VIX is finally starting to wake up and show some "life" . . . Days of Rage, PIIGS CDS and Japan . . . VIX now up to 29 but that still factors in a daily standard deviation of only 1.8% which seems low given what we are dealing with right now.

michael can remember 165.  i don't think he's older than i am, so he probably has more functioning neurons.  let's talk 300, M!.  Haha!   only a few years ago, tho, 120-130, right?

people think that japan needs to sell bonds, but why can't they sell Treasuries into this and then dump the dollarz?  hey, maybe that's non-intervention enuf?  let uncle sugar intervene if he doesn't like it!  and all those otherz, too. 

the casino is hummin, now!

the whip is just crackin in the commodity pits!  and i wonder if that is not where the dollar strength is coming from---the food and energy unwindz and the paper precious.

Just a small detail, but the Taliban and Al Qaeda, along with others were all conveniently lumped together under 'The Terrorists' back around 2001 or so. Makes the rhetoric much simpler.

You could conceivably lump Unions, Bloggers, Gay marriage and Global Warming under the catchall 'liberal' or 'libtard'.

Looking over the horizon, if there is a functioning United States in 6 months, don't you think there exists a "Marshall Plan for Japan."

What's the USDJPY bi-winning trade on that between the BOJ and FRB - 220% debt/gdp verses 130% debt/gdp.

The Japanese are not about to let the PLA show up for reconstruction missions, and the US certainly needs the disaster-capitalism avenue to print more money.

Time to bone up on MacAurther's SCAP and all plans Marshall.

What is evolving on the ground in Japan is nothing short of the effects of a limited nuclear war.

As a side note, these photos of Japanese refugee centers do not seem to have a lot of kids in them.  I'm sure Japanese demographics will play a huge role in the US rebuilding a China counter-weight.

I have talked to people who know about this kind of disaster and they have been telling me this is far worse than Chernobyl. Now if we take into account all the materials and products that come from that region of the world (basically everything) this could have massive implications on trade.

It should also be noted that the only entities really capable of measuring this in its entirety is the government(s) which will lie about this like nothing else.

This is the financial equivalent of the 8.9 earthquake, that is now ripping apart the world's financial systems.

The derivatives counterparties and pools are the financial nuclear reactors and nuclear waste pools of this event.

As Warren was fond to say "Deriviates are like nuclear waste."

Not well. I was just looking at the EUR-USD-JPY triangle.

Tell me how is it the the EUR-USD is holding at 1.39 and the EUR-JPY is holding at 1.09 while the melt down occurs between the JPY-USD?

The presures have got to be as high as the nuclear reactors before they blew.

Or, am I missing something?

Also interested on implications for US mfg. If the dollar really tanks, then the China mfg hedemony may be over too as it becomes the new reserve and the dollar the under valued tender.

Everyone can put it back in their pants usd heading back up vs jpy.   I got stopped out earlier lost 50 pips but I bought at 77.57 so I'm up around 108 pips with a tight trailing stop.

Exactly. Best house on a shitty block. In a global deflation scenario you want dollars until the correlation break and PM's establish themselves as the true reserve currency but that is a few years away. One can never ignore the geopolitics of having naval dominance and shores that cannot be invaded. The U.S. can weather any storm because of military dominance and declare default and survive at any time and every other nation is toast and will eat each other. We have to look years ahead to the best situated to endure a global war.

Obama should be shitting his panties...Japan is sucking money back into it's country...why should it fund other countries when it's gonna struggle to cover rebuilt costs?  Asia will be hit re: Indonesia, Mayalaisa and Vietnam.  Now watch CDS spreads...

Obama's playing golf, making his stupid fucking picks, and trying to figure out if his SS agents can get him some strange while he's in RIO.

Let's face it.  We really did elect a freaking man-child to be our "leader".  Apra fucking Po.

Excuse me, my wife's kid just told me that Charlie's gonna have a new web-cast on soon, and I gotta run to the bottle shop for a box o beer.

  It will not be. As Schiff says what is the point of having a rainy day fund if you are not using it? There is no chance the Japanese will choose to support our economy and their simultaneously. This is 2008 all over again. They have to sell treasuries and the market is bigger than Ben.

There seems to be a fundamental flaw in your analysis.  To assume Obama is concerned, you must first assume he's not been looking for a Black Swan to save his sorry ass.  Hate to say it, but I think this may be his saving grace.  Ben's too.  Nothing better than a collapse that can be orchestrated to look like the fault of another.

Our worthless leader is going to convince the peasants, the king rules over all global peasants.

Teleprompter spoilers:

O! You better watch out!

You better not cry.

Better not pout, I'm telling you why.

Obama is coming to Rio de Janeiro.

 

The FTA between the E.U. and Colombia, as well as Peru, was signed on May 19, 2010, and aims to boost bilateral trading between the European bloc and the Andean nations.

The proposed agreement, which still needs to be ratified by the European Parliament, has faced criticism over the state of human rights in Colombia, as well as protests from members of the dairy industry who were concerned about the implications of competing with the heavily-subsidized European market.

Just another angle of fraud & deception we live in. Don't forget to tune in on the corrupt leader lying to the public this weekend.

If FX desks and primary dealers are blowing up, who is winning? You can't lose a trillion dollars without someone else making a trillion dollars, unless you literally burn it.

It's margins getting crushed...you sell then you gotta shift funds out, usually UST's.  when a huge cross like the YEN crosses unwind it's a big shock.  1. most banks held longs on USD/YEN, played the carry trade on the AUD/JPY and AUD/USD interest rate play.  So this will blow up complacent bidders, you'll have sells across the board. 

Now the hedge funds start to short, i think they will beat anything BoJ throws at the market re: nuclear meltdown

Soon the dollar will be worthless, this is a fact we are all aware of.

But all is not lost, because the real problem with the currency is that it is green and looks like shit - nobody wants it anymore.

So why not change the colour of the dollar?

Make it a nice shiny gold and silver color, and even mix a tiny amount of real gold and silver into the currency.

Everybody will want this really cool gold/silver backed currency.

Trust me it will work.

Besides if you are going to print money at least make it look sexy.

Who needs ugly Abe you could have a silver Marilyn Munroe $10 bill?

Who needs shaggy Ben when you could have a golden Betty Page $100 bill?

Wow you could have $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6 all the way up to $1,000,000 sexy bills.

And if this new currency doesn't work then you could just look at your money and jerk off.

Now, I'll just sink a pangalacticgargleblaster or two, then pop over to Magrathea to chill out with me old mate Slartibartfast.

Wake me up when the GGI (greater galactic index) reaches 15,123,345,875,126,696 quadtrillion.

Cheers dears.
