The level the BoJ has often cited is 100 to 110 - so no reason for anyone to panic right now. USD/JPY can - and probably will - go lower from here. All the pundits will have to go back to the drawing board.

John - there have been a lot of analysts that have predicted a demise in USD/JPY because of "improvement" in inflation expectations and "limits" on BoJ -- BUT 2 things - 1. China and its impact on competitive currency valuations on its neighbors (customers and suppliers, including Japan) and
2. BoJ (w/Finance Ministry) has no limits - been a while since intervention BUT they still have the Playbook available - if your 1.20 yen is the happy level they will come in and when most unexpected
Some folks haven't seen this in their experience

-- Core CPI overstates inflation
-- weak CAD hurting consumers via import prices

jp - DC cb noted the subsidy cuts, the article you posted notes the age demographic (many of the younger folks are well educated) -- the risk of domestic chaos raises the risk of first response of external military adventure // So Yemen proxy war could expand -- Iranian sanctions are flashpoint for US/Saudi relations /// the middle east situation deteriorates further just a question of how quickly (my EUR comment of earlier) -- the House of Saud has much in common with the House of Romanov

Saudi Arabia's troubled economy could bring down ruling House of Saud
The IMF estimated last year that Saudi Arabia needs a global oil price of around $106 (£72) a barrel to balance existing levels of expenditure with revenues.

Sydney.... is that a serious question?
"By 1943, the Soviet Union had already lost some 5 million soldiers and two-thirds of its industrial capacity to the Nazi advance. That it was yet able to turn back the German invasion is testament to the courage of the Soviet war effort."
At any rate let the Brits vote. I'm not sure anyone cares except the Brits. And I have nothing against democracy.
But welcoming Russia in Europe would be positive. First Europe has to find some politicians NOT on the Washington payroll. Could take a while.
That would be more exciting if the UK was a member of the EURO. It's not. So they leave, take their currency and their trade deficit elsewhere. Personally I don't see it happening. But you never know. Probably a lot less interesting to the rest of the world than it is to the British press. The days of Empire a long gone. Someone should tell the Brits. :-)

(Reuters) - A majority of Britons who have made up their minds would vote to leave the European Union in a forthcoming referendum, making Britain by far the most reluctant member of the 28-nation bloc, an opinion poll published on Thursday showed.

11:02 China blames speculators for weakened yuan
Central bank promises to keep currency stable
China’s central bank pointed its fingers at speculators for the recent dramatic weakening of the Chinese currency and vowed to keep the yuan largely stable.
“Some speculative forces are trying to reap gains from playing the renminbi,” the People’s Bank of China said in a statement Thursday morning, using another name for the yuan. Those trading activities “have nothing to do with (China’s) real economy” and have only caused “abnormal fluctuations” in the currency, the central bank said.
“Faced with such speculative forces,” it continued, the central bank “has the ability to keep the yuan stable at a reasonable equilibrium.”
Why not blame Zhou Xiaochuan instead - he the one in charge since December 2002 of the monetary policy of the People's Republic of China

fwiw Vice Chair Fischer strikes me as mildly hawkish. I have heard him interviewed several times and he is not the dove that some say. Also, I sense he is not living in mortal terror of the markets as many of his colleagues apparently are.

Fed Vice Chair Fischer:
-- Market estimate for Fed tightening too low.
-- Estimates for four rate hikes in 2016 in the ballpark.
-- Levels of uncertainty have risen somewhat
