Nikkei Q1 2017 Fundamental Forecast: Bullish (based on the article)


Fundamental Analysis 

  • "The Bank of Japan has been buying stocks for over two years now. And in September, the BoJ got unlimited-firepower for future QE-efforts by swapping to a yield-curve target rather than a rigid and set amount of bond purchases every month; and there is no end-date in sight.
  • "As long as the global ‘recovery’ continues, the Yen should remain weak as driven by the Bank of Japan’s uber-dovish policies. And with weak-Yen, Japanese stocks will likely continue to accrue in value on the basis of more earnings for exporters (weaker Yen means exporters bring back more from overseas transactions)."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Nikkei 225 (based on the article)


Nikkei 225"We will look to the a top-side trend-line at around 19475 as resistance, with a break above the 2/13 high of 19519 as giving the Nikkei potential to begin an advance towards hitting 20k. It will of course need to break above 19615 for full clearance. On the downside, watch the 2/10 gap-day for a possible fill. On Friday, the market dipped slightly below the gap-day low, but closed back above. A fill of that gap would carry the Nikkei down into the lower trend-line in the 18970 vicinity, with swing lows beneath at 18805 and then 18650. A break below those levels likely means we are seeing some form of risk-off on a global basis. No notable news events on the docket to get excited about."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Nikkei 225 (based on the article)


Nikkei 225"The big event out of Japan will come on Thursday, with the BoJ meeting. Expectations are for a fairly benign outcome, with the central bank not expected to make any changes to current policy. However, with that said, as per usual, expect the unexpected and manage risk accordingly."

Nikkei 225: weekly correction, daily bearish reversal (based on the article)

Weekly price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: the price is testing 18.795 support level to below on close weekly bar for the secondary correction to be started. By the way, the support level at 17,403 is the bearish reversal level, and if the price breaks this level to below so the reversal of the weekly price movementto the primary bearish market condition will be started.

Anyway, the daily price was already reversed to the bearish trend by good breakdown which was started in the beginning of the last month.


  • "The Nikkei 225 seems to be in a spot of technical trouble, at least when looked at from a short-term perspective. This might not be obvious. After all, the index has been meandering for a couple of weeks, notching up almost as many rising days as fallers. Nevertheless, it has remained capped by a downward-sloping trend line in place since mid-March. That’s not good news for the bulls. Given current daily trading ranges a quick retake of that point looks like a big ask. This puts short-term focus on the downside, where clear support remans hard to sport until we get all the way back to 18823, which arrested the index’s early-February slide."
  • "Longer-term however, the picture looks a little brighter. The Nikkei remains very well within an ascending channel which began back in July 2016. The base of that channel is miles away to the downside at around 17500."

Nikkei 225 Index - daily bullish breakout (adapted from the article)

Daily price broke Ichimoku cloud to above for the breakout with the bullish reversal: Chinkou Span line crossed the historical price to above together with Tenkan-sen/Kijun/sen line bullish signal and 19,289 resistance level to be broken for the bullish trend to be continuing.


  • "Back on April 11 the index succumbed to a fall which was small in magnitude but potentially bigger in implication because that move snapped to the downside a trading range which had endured for 2017. Indeed, it was put in place by the long climb up from the lows of June 2016."
  • "Strong support was rather scant below that and the entire rise at least from November could have been threatened. That could potentially have taken the index all the way back down to 16898.
  • "However, that fall seems to have been comprehensively rejected by the last few sessions’ action, which has in turn broken a downtrend channel which had been in place for nearly a month."

Nikkei 225 Index - daily bullish; 20,015 is the key level (based on the article)

Daily shares price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart. The price is testing 20,015 resistance level to above for the bullish trend to be continuing.


  • "The Nikkei 225 has made its highs for the year in the past week. Indeed, it is now loitering around peaks not seen since the end of 2015."
  • "Well, the technical signs are rather mixed as you’d expect. But they’re by no means universally gloomy. For one thing, the current thrust higher from April 17 has quite convincingly broken a notable down-channel in place since March 13. In the 21 trading sessions since that break the index has managed 13 daily gains and only seven (modest) losses on the way to current highs."
  • "Moreover, the last time the index got up to these levels, it only stayed there for about twelve trading sessions before collapsing in exhaustion. This was back in 2015. This time it has already occupied the heights around 199800 for eight trading days. So, a weekly close around current levels and range trading into next week would be a pretty good sign for those worried that history will repeat itself."

Nikkei 225 - daily bullish ranging; 20,315 is the key (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart. The price is on ranging within 19,155 bearish reversal support level and 20,315 bullish continuation resistance level. Tenkan-sen line of Ichimoku indicator is still above Kijun-sen line which is indicating the bullish trend to be continuing in the near future.


  • "The Nikkei 225 looks quite comfortable around the big, 20,000 level. But how much higher does it want to go? Well, assuming that you’re a Nikkei bull, we’ll start with the good news. The index is still clearly within the uptrend channel which has marked its long and quite impressive rise from the lows of mid-May. That gain has taken the Tokyo equity benchmark to two-year highs and seen it top that psychologically important 20,000 mark which it remains above."
  • "Indeed, the more recent bumpy, sideways slog across the channel’s lower reaches makes it more likely that the index has in fact been consolidating for the past month or so. For sure it has done so in a higher range than that which came before, but it remains to be seen whether that consolidation marks a top or a base for a push yet higher."
