If we consider USDJPY as a proxy for the Yen we can see in the daily chart below that it is highly probable that from the January 2 high price should unfold a Zig Zag down. The rebound from the February 4 lod is clearly corrective (Maybe it could be forming a Bearish Flag) fulfilling the proper structure of a countertrend wave (B).

We can locate the potential target for the assumed wave (B) in the range 103 - 103.64 although probably it should stall at the 50 dma, which stands at 103.50.

The Bollinger bands are tightening suggesting that a large move is coming.

If USDJPY has a pending wave (C) down FXY should do the opposite with a wave (C) up, hence I am watching if with a falling wedge price completes the wave (B) which would open the door to the kickoff of the assumed wave (C) up with a theoretical target in the area of 99.

The main objective of this project is to share my views on several markets and asset classes.

In the initial stage TWT website will be a free service.

My main focus will be the equity market with SPX being the leader but I will also follow US equity sectors, major European indices, fixed income, currencies and commodities markets.

My analysis is based upon traditional Technical Analysis, Elliot Wave guidelines and investor sentiment.

My goal is to establish the most likely path that the price of a particular asset will undertake and profit through ETF instruments both on the long and short side and mainly with leveraged ones (2 x & 3 x).

The advantage of ETF investments is that it allows getting involved in equity indices & sectors, currencies, fixed income, commodities etc.

Therefore the main purpose of TWT will be to establish investment strategies regardless if the market is in an up trend or in a down trend, leveraging the chosen scenario while managing the risk by establishing protective stop losses.

Hence I will always define the risk, I will try to let winners run the wave and I will cut the losses if my strategy is wrong.
