How we trade
5/5 of 3 ratings

The USD/JPY has sharply rebounded higher in the aftermath of the Federal Reserve's decision to raise interestrateso n Wednesday. However this Asian morning, the Bank of Japan has caught the markets by surprise with the issuing of a statement that it intends to start purchasing Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) aside from government and corporate debt.

This has resulted in a massive spike in Japanese stocks and the USD/JPY, which somewhat surprised investors. However after a period of 10 minutes, the markets decided to discount the news, since the balance sheet of the Bank of Japan would remain unchanged. This is the reason why we are looking to buy daily puts around 121.30 today.
