The analyst expands: "Some Europeans disagree, with massive cross JPY flows going their way. The positive side effect is that peripheral yields are in demand helped possibly by this inflow of foreign capital." Corrections in long EURUSD and USDJPY, in view of the analyst, "remain therefore tactical opportunities to buy back into" Sebastien adds.
