I developed my own method (which is not proven yet) to participate in a change in direction. Since the stock market has gone up a couple of days, I'm inclined to think if it goes up for maybe another day and a half, it may resume its uptrend. (I developed my method for the EUR/JPY so I'm not sure how to confirm a change in direction for the stock market.) However, the EUR/JPY is a little closer to confirming a change in direction. But, #1, it did not react powerfully today to positive news and the upward move in the stock market and #2, it's pretty much in a consolidation phase which may mean the EUR/JPY has stalled and might be ready to plunge again. This makes me wonder if Forex traders are anticipating another leg down in the stock market.
