The opening last week was very volatile, with large gaps in the majority of currency pairs, followed by strong moves in the Yen crosses. While things quieted down later in the week, we could face a similar situation this Monday. Not necessarily with the Japanese Yen, but with increased volatility in Forex. Chances are good, that currencies as a group will gap again, on the account of spending cuts in Washington.
