I am just a math guy and new to the econ things but here it goes. The obvious paper trails have been mentioned. Could another one be a mass movement from a holding of the USD to the Yen? Ie. Japan does not seem to be a target yet and the Yen has been really weak. With the recent attacks one could have expected the Feds and EU cuts in interest rates saying d*mn the inflation. Moving your money just before from a still somewhat strong dollar to a weak Yen with the expectation of other investors moving to a nontargeted economy like Japan would be a fairly obvious move. Any thoughts?
