The USD/JPY pair rose like a rocket during the Friday session as the market cleared the 78 handle without much resistance. This is interesting as it should have been very resistive been that it was so supportive before. This suggests to us that perhaps there is something behind this working under the radar. The first thing that comes to mind of course is the Bank of Japan as they have clandestinely worked in this pair previously. We think based upon the scandal a move higher from this point in time has this market looking for the 79.50 level in short order. As for selling, it’s obvious you can’t.
