    Short yen long dollar trade blew up. Margin calls everywhere even in the USA. The moral of the story.... It is unwise to lever up big bets on a new policy that unproven. Chances are a wipsaw is coming as well. Japan still intends to unleash a huge dose of QE. The yen may still take a dive.

    Once you see pompous blowhards in print bragging about their positions, you know its over. Did you read about the guy who has his mortgage in yen so he can pay it back with toilet paper?
