The world's most popular macro trade pays off, with the yen closing 2012 at its lowest level (vs. the dollar) in 2 years. Possibly in the BOJ's playbook: Purchases of overseas bonds.

    If yen stays low for long, there will be fundamental impact on the global economy. Sure US export will be effected in some way.
