achieved target at 168.31 from 172.00’s. range 145.84 to 148.77 Vs. actual 148.84 -145.66. Next week: 145.87 – 148.65. Large ranges for USD/JPY; otherwise, nothing special.

From the FX weekly on Sunday, 112.10 was the big line once DXY cleared the many hurdles at 111.00’s. DXY dead stopped yesterday at 112.15. For the FED, DXY traded 161 pips, and every 77 pips reported as support and resistance points, or 77 X 2 = 154.

For the Fed yesterday, DXY 110.99 vs. 0.9916. EUR/USD began at 0.9872 and DXY at 111.47. Neither price was touchable as immediate long or short. This is typical for all central bank meetings as every market price, currency, or otherwise begins at a neutral position.

DXY broke 110.99 to 110.43 or 66 pips, while EUR/USD traded above 0.9916 to 0.9975 or 59 pips. If ever free money existed in trading, yesterday’s example was prime. DXY from 110.43 didn’t have a choice except to long to a minimum of 110.99, while EUR/USD also didn’t have a choice except to trade lower to 0.9916.

In the larger scenario, all USD pairs had to trade long and all non-USD short. The potential was 60 pips per currency and free money. The Fed by itself holds no value of importance since the Fed is just another central bank and holds the same dilemmas and challenges as all central banks.

Consider movements. raised 50 points and moved 30 pips, raised 50, and traded 60 pips. As in the old days, no value to profits exists in central bank meetings.

The value for Fed meetings is DXY as, the determination of every market price on the planet. DXY price affects every stock, currency, yield, and interest rate. If not for DXY, Fed meetings would trade 30 and 50 pips.


As written and suspected, the BOJ intervened twice, on Sept. 30 for 2838.2 billion and Oct. 31 for 6349.9 billion. The BOJ’s history throughout is never intervening once but many times. Caution exists to further interventions, especially if the BOJ fails to raise rates.
