Re: Yen

I was watching that thing on cabonet office. was good i thought.

what's behind it arabian do you know? i can't see anything about nuclear explosions and I was watching it at the 80 handle and didn't see anything crazy like. was it just stops and then program selling?

anybody know?

and why didn't they defend 80, surely theyll' have to do something?

80+ to 76.50ish without WW3 or summit is a bit stupid to me : /

Re: Yen

arabianights started this thread supposed to be massive margin calls apparently (hence it plunging just after US session end).

I just blew a random spread bet account on it

Will probably turn out to be some prick arab or some similar type (made money through one thing, possibly luck, who now thinks they understand trading) who bought it because it was on its lows () - unlikely to be institutional cause very few that retarded... and out of courtesy they wouldn't be, er, treated like that... the price action suggests entire market knew about their position... so I'm going with gobby prick

Re: Yen

hmmmmm margin calls?

well if I make (massive assumption) that there are (or were lol) big structured product interest in the 80 handle, i didnt see anything that looked there was alot of people interested in defending it, just a few stops and fast money on the print

so if there was enough knock ins / barriers / whatever to make margin calls make it sell off 3 handles, I would expect to see someone try to defend it. but i didn't.

and anyway margin calls in what? surely any non-fx product with a cut of this late is going to be USD denominated? so meeting a margin call means demand for dollars not selling in yen?

maybe the 9:00 - 9:01 action could be margin calls / liquidation but the whole thing, I don't buy it.


*neck on line; 80 before new lows, provided no nuclear explosion*
