The China Syndrome , North Korean announcement of a hydrogen-bomb, and Middle East tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are just a few of the dramas playing on the sentiment of investors. All the world’s a stage and in the theatres of geopolitics and capital markets, the Yen (USD/JPY) currently has center stage. All eyes are fixed upon it as it is currently testing support, which if violated could send it to a level with a 116 handle. Think about the crowd’s reaction if such a trouncing of the US Dollar were to occur. The Nikkei 225 and the SP-500 will be booed off stage and pelted with rotten stocks (of Apples (AAPL) and whatever else bears can find to throw at the bulls).
Hillbent on the Market Direction… 😯
