Those who were skeptical about my call for USDJPY at 91.80, it was all about the rise in GLOBAL BOND YIELDS which is ALMOST ALWAYS NEGATIVE for yen and positive for YEN CROSSES

By the way bond yields usually go up seasonally speaking from Mar to June

With USDJPY exploding above the 200 daily moving average, are the flood-gates open for Jan high?

That was an unpleasant usd/jpy short squeeze the factor being the sudden rise in short term treasury yield the reason for this being not too clear there was a farly poor bid rate for treasury auction but does not explain the spike VIX spiked up too equity rally stilll goes up but on very low volumes due for a correction

AVG, stocks will have to start dropping for JPY to stabilize. I did call for USDJPY at 91.80 last week. Itis now treading near 200-day MA. But if Janet Yellen keeps on talking about rates remaining low etcc, then that helps stocks against JPY. Bernanke to speak tomorrow.

Ashraf,

Thanks for your opinion.

W/ nearly $10 tn in debt ($2.5 tn of which matures later this year), do you think Japan is sitting comfortably? Bear in mind that it has the second-highest, or the highest, debt-to-GDP ratio. Do you still expect JPY to do well near the end of '10?

If the above is true, then why does the investment community consider JPY a safe haven?
