  • Bond prices have become a focus on fears of eventual investor inability to absorb large amounts of bonds. At times, USD has been trading inversely with bonds.
  • These realities have made forex trading more complex. Occasionally, there is still a USD carry trade, where asset purchases (equities, etc.) are financed in USD. That is why the USD often weakens when equities rise.
  • As for the U.S. equity bounce, bull trends feed off market skepticism. The real world economic recovery requires time. Markets move much faster than the real economy.
  • Fed has aggressively attacked the weak economy. USD constructive, but impact of policy moves takes time.

  • Japan�s economy showing improvement signs. China recovery would help.
  • JPY often a beneficiary of risk aversion plays.
  • Large repatriation inflows have supported the JPY.
  • Bank of Japan forcing funds into economy quantitative easing (QE). Fear of return to its old deflationary price pattern.
  • Nikkei correlates well with the USD/JPY. Equity prices improve when the JPY weakens.
  • North Korean saber-rattling a worry for JPY.
  • Tokyo always wants JPY weaker. Carry trades returning vs. Aussie$.
