And yet JPY/USD is still sub 82 ... what does that tell you about the intrinsic value of USD? That is truly spooky.

One interpretation:


If this were not already enough, the Japanese are now selling US Treasuries to repatriate money back to their country for rebuilding purposes (Japanese insurance companies hold large numbers of US Treasuries which they will need to sell and convert to yen to pay claims – that is the reason for the big rally in the yen on Friday and the weakness in the Treasuries).

I knew it, said it, and people laughed. Unintended consequences will quake the markets worldwide.

If you are going to panic, panic first.

Massive sovereign debt is a threat to national security in situations like massive earthquakes and hurricanes that are inevitable.

How does the BoJ inject liquidity?  Do they buy assets?  Or do they somehow stimulate more participation at the debt window?

Sun, 03/13/2011 - 20:38 | 1047730 Yen Cross

Via US treasury liquidations.

But if they swap US Treasuries for Yen, they're taking Yen out of the market.  Presumably they're injecting those Yen back into the market.  I can't imagine they're using the debt windows - I'm assuming those debt windows have been abused so long, the "customer base" has indigestion.  In which case I'm assuming they're swapping Yen for other assets (possibly even US Treasuries being sold by private holders in Japan - one article talked about the Insurance sector liquidating their holdings - I could imagine BoJ buying those).

Yes, they buy 'assets' (note inverted comma's). The idea is to 'monetise' the 'assets' of the 'banking' system, so as to keep it 'liquid'.

They have to liquidate their Dollar holdings to buy commodities for the rebuild.

They can only buy commodities in Dollars. It is the reserve currency.

Buy dumping Treasuries they can buy commodities cheaper.

The Tsunami may have hit Japan.

But it may no just hit the Dollar.

If Bernanke prints more it makes it worse.

I call this rock and a hard Tsunami.

True story:

Many years ago I hired a Polish Blonde Bombshell accountant for my business. (I know that wasn't to brite but I was young then and the eye candy was prime !)

When I approached her about accounting irregularities ( As the ledger had a -6,000  imbalance on the checking Reconciliation for that month) she said no problem and went into the software (right then and there) and just added $6000 to the checking account (as I watched) and when she hit the enter key she said "ok" "All fixed now".

Her employment was terminated on the spot.

I think that is what all these central banks are doing. Although they are not as good looking as she was  !

Why aren't U.S. citizen's storming wall street to show the powers that be that they still have fight in them? Last time i went down there it was an easy stroll through, no barb wired, walls or anything major to stop it being stormed like the brave souls of the middle east stormed their institutions.

Maybe Americans have become so dumb that they think Wall street is called so because of it's impenetrable walls.

The apathy is truly sickening. The U.S. is going to crumble to nothing overnight and rightly so, the citizen's didn't even put up a fight.

Yes, unfortunately that's the truth. Well, i think it's now been rubber-stamped, based on their behavior over the past few years, the US citizen is the most apathetic, docile, mentally challenged, immoralistic being on the planet at this time in history.

Go Team!

I feel sorry for all the hard working, abused, downtrodden, people of the far east that have subsidised the lifestyle of the U.S. citizen.

@7:47 pm EST there was a huge volume spike in the /ES of over 10,000 contracts (which is huge at that time) promptly reversed direction for the /ES as it surged (in 1 minute mind you) from 1291.75 to 1300.75 (IN 1 MINUTE!!!)

alright people, nothing to see here, move along.
