Analysis and Recommendation:

The USD/JPY continued to weaken as the JPY holds on tight it is strenght. The USD strenghtened against most of its partners yesterday and this morning, except against the JPY.

This morning, outgoing MoF Minister said that the MoF would do what ever is necessary to control the FX markets. Azumi is being moved to a higher post, now that Prime Minister Noda has been re-elected.

Eco data in Japan this week includes CPI (-0.5% y/y exp), retail sales, and industrial production.

Government officials, economists and traders are hoping to find a way to weaken the JPY. Risk aversion is still the culprit for the strenght of the JPY, with gold prices too high and the USD uncertain, what risk aversion is in the market all seek safety in the JPY.
