Dollar | Yen

A 80 day cycle top looks imminent -> expecting a final push up followed by a sharp break.

As highlighted in last week's note, price is still pushing towards the psychologically important 150 level, which also happens be near enough a 25 year high.  Price is also overstretched at 2 standard errors above the a regression channel mean plotted from the 2011 low (not shown). The 80 day cycle top is due and potentially this week: the cluster of circles and whiskers at the top of the chart show the likely placement area (see Circles and Whiskers note).  Out of the top we are expecting a sharp decline into the next 80 day cycle trough around mid-November somewhere between 140 and 145, but this view is likely to become clearer once price has turned down.
