    Re: Japan Fundamentals

    Japan heavily depends upon exports, so BOJ - Bank Of Japan intervenes time to time by selling Yen to make JPY cheaper to protect the interest of Japanese exporters. BOJ is fighting heavily the reduce deflation . Hence we may expect only weakening JPY and any opportunities to enter long usdjpy, eurjpy,gbpjpy on pullback should not be ignored by us.
