The inverse correlation of USDJPY & XAUUSD provides clarity that traders can benefit from acknowledging.

XAUUSD Outlook
The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold,
tips, and spreads like wildfire.

USDJPY bears didnt stand a chance when two critical changes were announced on October 31, 2014. The
first, was the Government Pension Investment Fund or GPIC, the worlds largest pension fund would allow a
larger percentage of the portfolio to be allocated outside of Japan, which will done via selling the JPY so the
JPY weakened and USDJPY pushed higher. Secondly, the Bank of Japan or BoJ took massive action by
increasing their QE from 60-70T JPY TO 80T JPY in order to ensure the inflation target would be hit.

In effect, the BoJ was looking to enact a tipping point so that JPY would weaken in such a way to encourage
inflation. You can see above that the technical of higher USDJPY align with the wishes of the Bank of Japan.
Now that the two forms of analysis align to favor a weaker JPY we notice another pattern of weaker
XAUUSD. Lets take a deeper look to see what this could mean moving forward.
Correlation Analysis XAUUSD & USDJPY
The purpose of looking into correlations is to get a clean view on what direction an asset youre looking to trade
could possibly move. Correlations can be easily applied to all markets but are very clean in the Forex market
because FX underlies all other asset markets as a pricing mechanism. An important note is that correlation does
not equal causation, which means that because things happen together does not mean that one action specifically
causes another action. This mindset is important so that you do not over rely on correlations just like you
shouldnt over rely on RSI or moving averages.

A simple way to apply correlation analysis is to use the Price Overlay tool on the Marketscope toolbar. This
will allow you to apply your chosen instrument over the current chart like you see above with USDJPY applied
above XAUUSD. You can play around with different markets to see a clean correlation. If you notice one
market moves higher and another market overlaid moves in the opposite direction nearly in tandem, it is known
as an inverse correlation and can still be helpful to your trading like we see on the above chart.

what may happen next in one market by identifying a clean trend in the other market. Because the BoJ pushed
JPY lower and USD higher, the outlook for XAUUSD is now favorable for further downside.

In addition to the inverse correlation paving the way for higher USDJPY and lower XAUUSD, we can use
analysis like Elliott Wave to look for further downside levels. Elliott combined common patterns and Fibonacci
to help you see probable outcomes based on prior market outcomes. The already favored downside view of
XAUUSD thanks to USDJPY can turn our view lower to a Fibonacci level of $1,000, which is an extension of
the recent move.
