By Randolph Donney  —  Jun 03 - 02:45 PM

  • USD/JPY up by 131 and nearing May's 20-yr EBS peak at 131.35

  • NFP beat lifted Treasury yields, Fed rate hike pricing and dollar

  • Further gains in energy prices favor US exporters vs Japan importers

  • Little historical resistance above 131.35 until 2002's 135.15 peak

  • Options relatively short gamma above 131 next week, RRs shed yen call bias
