The Weekend Is Over, And The Yen Is Getting Crushed

First big market story of the week: The yen is getting crushed after the huge landslide for Shinzo Abe, the Japanese opposition candidate who has run on a platform of much more easing.

And so the yen is getting crushed.

Here’s a look, via FinViz, at the dollar surging against the yen.
