BUT WAS IT REALLY A SURPRISE?

Well, to be honest, the news indeed was a surprise, but the direction that the Yen was going to take was no that surprising. This was because the price was leading the news, and we had already positioned ourselves beforehand for this move by sticking to our rules and applying the correct setups for such a market.

Hence it was no surprise when the new broke that I made S$4,866 (US$3410) profits from this move alone, from my long positions in USD/JPY, GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY, which gave me a net short exposure to the Yen.

In the Synapse Network, most of us took the same positions, but there were also some independent traders who used different pairs to get short exposure to the Yen. Either way, the results will not differ much.
