If they can both hold their rising channels, equities should tag along.  ES has dropped out of the rising white channel, but that hasn’t mattered much lately as NKD/USDJPY can negate just about any resistance — technical or otherwise.

USDJPY should be able to let some air out, maybe backtest some of the broken SMAs, as NKD has elevated to the .886 and is likely to stay there — or higher — until the close.
