USD/JPY Dollar/Yen Intraday Chart Failure at 95

The BOJ rules the U.S. equity markets. The weaker yen that caused the dollar/yen currency pair to explode up through 100 and higher has retreated now dropping through 95 overnight (reflecting a stronger yen). The weaker yen was the major cause of the U.S. equity indexes printing new all-time highs this year. Note the drop through 95, then back kiss to decide if price wants to collapse, which it did. The dollar/yen stumbles along 93.7-94.40, breaking through 94 briefly!, all morning long reflecting the S&P futures down from -3 to -9.  Alas, the stick save occurs a short time ago with the dollar/yen recovering strongly (weaker yen), hence, U.S. equities move higher, the S&P's have recovered and are now positive ahead of the opening bell a few minutes away.

The tumble in dollar/yen overnight causes the Nikkei to lose -6.4%, another mini crash, down to 12.4K, and placing the Nikkei in a bear market (down over -20% off the market top). The broader Topix fell -4.8%.  Asia in general sold off. The Shanghai dumps -2.8%.
