  1. missed yen above :) any thoughts on yen please?

  2. Well these guys are really trying the patience of Panda, Economic bitchslap to follow…

  3. Hey everybody, look at the GBP/JPY now. Those last eleven 5 minute candles are technical trading much of it programmed. Price is hugging the rescending trendline from the 3:30 high. Price is failing. The 4 hr and Daily are exhausted. Morte up will happen later thanks to the systematice Yen devaluation and the Brittish Pound loves stomping on the Yen lately. whoops, there it goes

  4. Wish I had spell check. Too many Bottingtons.

  5. I see $50 million bid orders in USD/JPY flying around on EBS like somebody switched on the accelerator of a Ferrari 612…..
