    I saw a huge waterfall pouring over a beautiful rock formation and the water looked like liquid glass so pure and transparent you could see all the rocks behind it . All around the base of the waterfall were people and they were enjoying the refreshing spray and droplets covering them as a beautiful misty spray and the droplets just seemed to hang in the air effortlessly and the sound of the waterfalls was the roar of His Voice. As I looked over where the water goes over the falls I saw Jesus with his bare feet standing in the...

    ABEGEDDON: Yen Surging, As Markets Violently Turn Against Japan Matthew Boesler June 6, 2013, 12:25 PM One of the big stories in global markets today is how the long-U.S. dollar, short-Japanese yen trade seems to be completely unwinding. The dollar is currently trading around ¥96.30 to the yen and is down 2.9% on the day after hitting a low of ¥95.89 earlier. Per Bloomberg TV's Sara Eisen, that's the biggest single-day drop in the currency pair in 3+ years. It seems like the market has not been re-assured by recent rumblings out of Japan, where the "Abenomics"-fueled rally in stocks...

    Reuters ^ | 05/12/2013 | By Herbert Lash
    The yen slid to a 4-1/2-year low against the dollar on Friday, triggering a sell-off in oil and gold as well as safe-haven U.S. and German debt, after recent signs of strength in the U.S. labor market added to bullish sentiment on the dollar. Wall Street surged at day's end, pushing both the Dow and the S&P 500 to record closing highs. Data on bond holdings in Japan showed the Japanese were buying more foreign assets, and the yen's collapse reverberated throughout financial markets. Conflicting signals about how investors view the economic outlook added to the yen's wide impact. The...

    The U.S. Treasury on Friday warned Japan not to actively weaken its currency as it again refrained from naming China a manipulator. In its twice-a-year assessment of whether any nation is a currency manipulator, Treasury said it will “closely monitor” Japan’s policies and the extent to which they support the growth of domestic demand. The new Shinzo Abe administration has pushed for aggressive bond-buying at the Bank of Japan, and the yen has dropped 13% against the dollar this year. The Japanese currency rose in Friday afternoon trade after the report was released. … China, meanwhile, escaped being branded a...

    The yen plunged to its lowest level in nearly four years and showed no signs of slowing its weakening trend in response to the Bank of Japan's latest push to ease monetary policy. Investors have been aggressively selling the Japanese currency since policy makers at the BOJ announced last week they will print trillions of yen to pump money into Japan's sluggish economy in a bid to keep interest rates low and spark faster growth. "Both Japanese and non-Japanese investors appear to be selling Japanese government bonds equally aggressively," said Michael Woolfolk, senior currency strategist at Bank of New York...

Bass, who if famously bearish on Japan, has timestamped his trading saying that the turn will come 18 to 24 months from now, NetNet's John Carney pointed out on Twitter. He's been predicting a debt collapse for a long time, but with nothing to show for it.

    Japan's finance minister said Friday that U.S. authorities should seek a strong dollar, making the most straightforward call yet from Tokyo's new leadership on Washington to help correct the yen's strength against the U.S. currency. Taro Aso, citing the U.S. currency's level being still below where it stood versus the yen when he served as prime minister in 2008-2009, said: "The U.S. ought to work toward making the dollar strong." He also played down the notion that the recent efforts by the new administration led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to weaken the yen could spark a devastating global race...

    Global Debt Crisis: Greece -> Europe -> Japan? From my previous article: Greece and Portugal are stuck in a very vicious cycle. Greek and Portuguese sovereign bond yields have risen substantially making it nearly impossible for these nations to roll over the debt with yields they can pay. For Greece, rising yields have brought it to the edge of default several times. To prevent a Greek default, the Troika (European Commission, International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank) has been sending large tranches of money to Greece to keep Greek bonds afloat and the Greek government solvent. Last year Portugal became...

    Yesterday the Japanese Finance Ministry made a whopper of an announcement: in the year ending March 2013, total Japanese debt will surpass one quadrillion yen, or ¥1,086,000,000,000,000. This is roughly in line with the Zero Hedge expectations that by this March total Japanese debt would surpass one quadrillion yen. In USD terms, at today's exchange rate, this is precisely $14 trillion. And while smaller than America's $15.4 trillion (net of all post debt ceiling breach auctions), which was $14 trillion about a year ago, the GDP backing this notional amount of debt, which just so happens is greater than...

Here's a chart of the dollar vs. yen via FinViz. As you can see, the dollar has surged against the yen in the past few minutes. The super-strong yen has been a source of major consternation for Japanese exporters, for whom the strong yen has made business difficult. Nintendo, for example, blamed the super-strong yen for a quarterly loss.

In an interview on Friday, the BOJ chief said actions by investors engaged in margin trading—the favorite game among the herd of small Japanese investors represented by a mythical...
