By buying AUD I have converted this trade from a crappy USD/JPY deal to a AUD/JPY deal. See post here. Target is 85.00 enroute to 105.00.
I remain comfortable with carry trades.
Sold USD3m and bought AUD at 0.8030, thus making the USD/JPY trade long AUD3,735,990.04 short JPY at 82.79.
Long NZD 3m short JPY at average of 57.23.
Current rate: 69.42

I remain comfortable with carry trades with the NZD/JPY up over 56.5% this year!
Happy with the current exposure.
Current rate: 1.5000
Overall I see the USD weakening considerably due to quantitative easing pressures. Recent data, especially in housing and unemployment indicates there is no pressure to change monetary policy, and easy conditions in the US will be the norm for a considerable time yet to come.
Cashed out: Way too soon!
