  1. Aug 24 (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda said on Tuesday recent currency moves are clearly one-sided and that disorderly moves can be harmful to the stability of the economy and the financial system.

  2. I think he should henceforth be referred to as the "Minister in charge of Stating the Bleeding Obvious".
  3. :D :D :D

    A source from a large French bank ( guess which one :) ) is reporting about wild rumors of BOJ intervention imminent...
  4. There was some talk on Tuesday that the Bank of Japan had been ‘checking prices’ in the foreign exchange market — a move that could suggest imminent intervention, or simply act as a sneaky reminder that the central bank is indeed around, and it is watching.

  5. Last print 83.72 and the BOJ is still "checking" quotes...LOL ! :D
  6. I for one am watching for BOJ intervention. If/when this happens, get ready to short JPY. For the time being, however, I will stick with the trend.
  7. Maybe these Japanese guys saw the "success" of the hedge fund known as SNB LLC and are having second thoughts.
