USDJPY did, in fact, spike back into the purple channel that has kept in on the rise since last December.  The result was a 1.5% gain in SPX, though it had some help from central bankers, horrid economic news, today’s OPEX.2015-10-16-USDJPY daily 0615For all the excitement, ES ended up at a key overhead resistance — though SPX still has a few points to go.
