Japan is chasing its tail on yen intervention - Channel News Asia

Quick Summary:

(Corrects to paraphrase paragraph 8 comments)By Vidya RanganathanSINGAPORE : As the Bank of Japan steps into currency markets for the first time in decades to defend a battered yen, it is running into numerous obstacles, chiefly its own stubborn commitment to ultra-easy monetary settings.

"Intervention success is not measured in days but rather decades," Malcolm wrote, pointing to how Japanese authorities had last bought about 150 billion worth of dollars at close to 75 yen in 2011.

UBS strategist James Malcolm reckons the intervention may be a concerted campaign lasting many months, given how much speculative positioning there is against the yen and Japan's war chest of nearly $1.3 trillion in FX reserves.
