USDJPY: Long TERM LONG

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen
FED's TAPPERING decision will mechanicaly decrise the supply chain of USD. Therefore USD will mechanicaly increase vs EUR, JPY, CHF GBP to say the least.
On the other hand, BoJ has also decided to put an end to its QE program .
Therefore, one could think that there will be a little battle between the balance of power of USD vs JPY Pair.
However, FEd has the tools to increase the demand of USD, such as FEd's interest rate policy, inflation risk etc, whereas BoJ leverage to increase the demand at a time where supply is limited is obviously limited.
On the monetary supply, there is too many Yen on the market, and no absorbtion capacity, where as the demand on USD is always dynamic and could be increased.
Therefore on a long term, I do think that USD will gain some value against the JPY without prejudice to any decision that can be taken by BoJ or FED.
on a short term, we may face a little correction in favor of USD, particularly because indicators stipulate that we are on the eve of an overbought level. However, this doesn't challenge at all the long term perspective that remain clear for me, even if Abenomics became a success with a 2% inflation in Japan, bare in mind that Japan was the first country to put into force QE since 1999. You will find here under the timeline since 1999.
