    Default Yen Carry trade effect on POG


    Just a general question to those who are far more savvy with the effects of currency on commodities.

    When/if (depending on your viewpoint) the yen carry trade starts to unwind, what will the net effect be on the price of gold? Will the unwinding cause some downward pressure on the USD which would push the POG up as the traditional inverse relationship between POG & VSD comes into effect?

    Or will the unwinding cause some free cash to come onto the market, halting a slide & giving rise to a few of the closet bulls, leading to a net demand for quality stocks, cause a halt to the flight to safety?

    Thanks in advance
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't; you are right.

    AUDJPY has a better correlation with gold than USD. I will be interested to see the COT data on gold and yen when its available.

    Money should be flowing into gold now and the large declines started in an illiquid after hours market which leads me to believe players would rather have gold move down with the markets than let the price rise and signal cracks in the facade of the varies markets. Debt, equity and FX
    Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
