Basically I dont see USD going to Y85 as any sign of USD worth, just as a speculative possibility. Which is why I recommend AUD, rather than JPY-USD on my blogs. AUD doing very nicely. So maybe its an issue of perspective. If you want to hold USD long term, I do think the USD will rise strongly next year. As I said months ago, the US will eventually have to raise interest rates to become a 'savings' country, so the associated higher interest rates will result in a stronger currency. Just in the short term, I see weakness. So maybe its an issue of time perspective. As a trader my money goes elsewhere.
