    The pair is moving higher on a bullish signal although i wouldn't have thought this to be very bullish....unless the renewed fear of taper is helping to lift the dollar while BOJ stim is helping to push down the yen?

    Strong bullish signal as higher high printed, no retracement yet, means the sentiment is strong.
    102 seems easy to reach now, I believe this happen because market fear taper will happen next month, and usually dollar rally in the last month of the year.

    Japanese Prime Minister Abe has approved the draft budget for the next fiscal year, which aims to mitigate the impact of higher taxes. State of the economy of Japan has improved.

    Prime Minister Abe has adopted a plan which envisages spending of 95.88 billion yen in the fiscal year, from April of 2014 year, while this year the sum was slightly lower 92.61 trillion yen. Estimated volume of the budget is the largest in the history of this country.

    The largest part of the additional revenue will come from an increase in the sales tax, while those funds to partially cover the costs of the social protection sector. Projective primary budget deficit should be lowered to 5.2 trillion yen to 18 trillion yen. It means that the national debt of Japan will continue to grow but at a slower pace.
