Hey, why not? There has already been more movement than we usually get in an Asian session!

This via Reuters, they've been on the ball all weekend:

  • Japanese yen, gold and sovereign bonds all rose early on Monday as North Korea's latest nuclear test provoked the usual knee-jerk shift to safe havens
  • Futures pointed to a difficult day for global equities
  • USD was marked down as deep as 109.22 JPY at the opening, off a whole yen from late on Friday
  • But there was no follow-through selling and it was last at 109.76
  • North Korea on Sunday conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test
  • prompting the threat of a "massive" military response from the United States if it or its allies were threatened
