The yen is now well into the 111 range, it's great! Really hope for continuing freefall with all the profits we can amass. Cheers japanese government!! Down down down please! For the japanese economy I shudder to think about the future. Frightening

Well thank God that everyone I know divested themselves of their personal stocks of the pathetic yen long ago. Today was a great money maker for us and once again I thank the japanese government for delivering us the profits. Hope the yen continues in freefall. But for the japanese economy what future is there?? Absolutely none, hopeless.

Storm is right, work for yourself if you can. I know a guy in his twenties, computer hacker and he makes very good money. A thriving industry these days amongst young people who have zero chance and motivation in the " conventional" world.

It's great seeing the yen dropping in value everyday, Wonder how far it can collapse now?? Everybody is selling it like crazy. There is no floor to the yen's value and absolutely no factors in its favor. Nobody wants it. A dead currency.
Happy days for everyone!

The yen is now approaching 110 to the dollar. This is great, just great. We have here a weak pathetic currency which we all just sell, buy back at a lower value, make huge profits and then just repeat the cycle all over again. Wonderful! Hope we see 150 and beyond soon! The Japanese economy is just so screwed but there is no one with any idea of what to do about it. Just great!

I hope and expect the yen will keep on dropping. Big profits to be made selling it like crazy! It's a 1 way bet as nobody wants it anymore.

These idiots think that by saying the economy is recovering that makes it so. Japan is in reality such a hopeless basketcase now. Way out of control debts, a zombie workforce, extremely low birthrate, a vast percentage of elderly parasites, falling population and finally a weak pathetic currency that no one wants to hold now. Hopeless!
To save Japan, a revolution is necessary but can never happen. Too many vested interests in the status quo who will be dead when the titanic finally sinks.

The Japanese economy has an extremely bleak future, there is absolutely nothing to look forward to there. 100 yen to the dollar would be an advantageous rate. But selling the yen is now a safe 1 way bet and the trend has now set in. Expect 120 and beyond in the near future. Frightening for the not- well -off Japanese and those foreigners stuck in Japan.

The economic news in Japan just gets worse everyday. With the yen now on a free fall trajectory, I hope everyone has big pockets to pay for all the massive price rises to come. Everybody must get out of the yen at once, only keeping absolute minimal necessary balances. The yen is becoming more and more worthless everyday.
