BoJ Is In Da House… : by Tyler Durden

BoJ Is In Da House…

Update (1045ET): It appears yentervention is back as USDJPY puked to 152/USD, suddenly two huge bids appeared in the market lifting it back to 148/USD…

Volume in yen futures is dramatically higher than volume at the last major intervention…

BOJ spending unlimited amounts of yen to keep YCC from imploding and the next day spending very limited amounts of USD to keep the yen from imploding.

Good luck guys

What will be the half-life of this round of manipulation?

Round 1 was on September 22…

Round 2 was just two weeks ago…

And Round 3 was just last week…

*  *  *

Despite intervention chatter overnight, the Japanese Yen is puking hard this morning, crashing above 151/USD just hours after breaching 150/USD for the first time in 32 years…

That Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki reiterated Friday that Japan was ready to act, saying that the recent sudden, one-sided yen weakness was undesirable and he was watching markets with a high sense of urgency.

160/USD (from April 1990) looks like the next support…

That puke is triggering chaos across the rest of global markets.

US Treasury yields are spiking (10Y above 4.30%)…

US equity futures are getting hit hard…

And Bitcoin plunged back below $19,000…

As one veteran trader MSG’d us: “they’ve totally lost control, The BoJ is f**ked either way here.”

He is referring to the fact that while no one is talking about it, The BoJ’s YCC scheme has failed with 10Y JGBs now trading above 25bps for over a month.

The Bank of Japan on Thursday said it would launch an emergency bond-buying operation, offering to purchase ¥250bn ($1.7bn) of government debt as it works to pin down yields even as long-term interest rates rise globally.

The choices before Japanese policy makers are stark:

either relax the yield-curve control framework;

or be willing to yen the weaken.

Until then, as we discussed last month, further interventions are doomed to failure.

Indeed, as Bloomberg’s Ven Ram recently noted: “there is no third choice really at a time when inflationary pressures in the US are likely to compel the Fed to keep going and causing inflation-adjusted yield differentials to move in favor of the dollar against the yen. “
