​​The Situation

In these uncertain times, it is interesting to look the behavior of
​the ​YEN ( top panel - candles ) ​in relation to the Mighty SP500
​( bottom panel -bar chart ) ​on the ​chart below.

Following the YEN can gives us a clue about the next trend in the
​Mighty SP500...​​​​​ Interesting to note that in both cases ( Yen and
​SP500 ), both lows made on ​August 24 2015 have been rejected
​violently ​and  also near peaks on November  2015.

But few of us realize that the Yen broke a Monthly Uptrend Channel
that started back in October 2012. All that when the BOJ ( Bank of
​Japan ) announced their new negative rates policy on January 29 2016.

​( See first chart below )​

​​The Mighty SP500 broke already its Monthly Uptrend Channel​​, ​earlier than the Yen but the keep the same trend. ( See first chart below )​

And quite impressive the daily relationship between the Mighty SP500 Index in Yen  ( SPY ETF​​ times the USDJPY exchange rate - candles ) compare to the Nikkei 225 Index ( Red Line ) on the second chart below.
