Watch AUDJPY for a continuation of this pattern and its implications

AUDJPY is a potential downside continuation pattern currently doing consolidation. At the moment, it is at support from last year’s bottom. A new 52-week low printed first quarter this year suggests further lows. Negative implications to stock indices if previous correlation is still valid.

It really shouldn’t matter to a speculator what caused this round of correction/crash. It could be a spike in the VIX complex, rising bond yields or runaway algorithm-trading. If there is a crash somewhere, it would be followed by margin calls which will trigger sell orders in other assets to raise cash.
