Unexpected monetary expansion from Bank of Japan sent global stocks higher. Treasuries are trading down, metals are following, while USD is looking strong especially against JPY.
USDJPY move to a new high of the year, now moving within wave (iii) that can reach levels around 112 where we see 261.8% Fibonacci extension target. Any downward pullbacks in the middle of this bullish trend will be just temporary corrections with limited downside.
