Don’t Fight the BoJ

I know what you’re thinking: it’s “don’t fight the Fed.” While that’s generally true, too, the Bank of Japan is the central bank which most conspicuously wears its balance sheet on its sleeve. When my charts are a farrago of bearish indicators, but the Nikkei pushes up through resistance? I’ve learned to ignore the indicators and become bullish.

Conversely, when the narrative is incredibly bullish but the NKD slips below important support, it’s time to short. For those who haven’t been paying attention, that’s where we are right now. We’ve had a few hints over the past week or so, but the NKD suggests there’s more to come. US stocks just haven’t gotten the message yet.
