Fascinating: Gold JPY correlation

One of the most fascinating things with gold             is it's almost constant price in JPY. Why? Keeping it constant on appreciating Yen means shorting Gold             . We are now at a sentiment change! Short JPY and long Gold             .So, why is there a need to keep Gold             in JPY constant? Well, maybe/probably the bullion bank gold             is not in China but rather in Japan... As a collateral for their long JPY carry trades....?
Interesting!
Japan i said to be the world's biggest credit nation while USA is the world's biggest deptor nation. Gold is prised in USD. Maybe that has something to do with it?

I would rather look when BOJ announced their various QQEx's and when bullion banks withdraw something from their vaults... Just guess. Was it before any QQE announcement or after...?

Don't know the answers to that question.
But I know there are some very big private japanese gold investors. It should definitly be worth following up. As far as I know BOJ (officially at least) are not partically big on gold.

You're welcome... But I didn't expect today's behaviour. And I did not expect GS and BofA changing their opinion...
