Will there be an overshoot to the all time high of ¥79.5? Looking at the fundamentals, you would not pick Japan to possess one of the world’s most virile currencies.

Japan’s notoriously anemic long term growth rate of a minuscule 1% hasn’t exactly seduced managers to pack their portfolio with yen assets. (FXY), (YCS).
