    Looking at this structure now and if we don't get a break to the down side today, I will close my long position before the weekend.
    Wishing all a great weekend and enjoy the time away from the charts! :)

    Bank of Japan purchased $2billion Japanese Equity ETF last week and now possess $127billion or if you prefer they own 3.2% of the market.
    The view is to stabilise markets and invest into their listed economy but this distorts GDP and market equitable correlations. Those that feel ETF's are an efficient and economic investment tool with minimal risks are unaware of an event called liquidity spirals. Furthermore the size of BoJ exposure to japanese equity markets and their own ETF causes a risk structure which isn't distributed. Their risk is concentrated on a single economy....their own. Hedgehogging is a real risk where a trade size becomes so large that it influences the very market they are trying to trade/invest within. Any purchases distorts the price upwards as constant buying distorts the supply/demand metrics and even worse any selling causes panic. Black swan events do occur and this is becoming a ticking time bomb.

    US president Donald Trump turned what would have been dull, dog days of an August trading week into a lively affair that sparked widespread risk aversion and got a whole bunch of people googling Guam.

    EURGBP made quite a breakout today. So far we have had the end of day mean reversion of close prices. A remarkably consistent market for this aspect :-)
    However today may well be different. A close below yesterdays day high implies IMHO an end of move and failed rally and I will look to swing short !
