 Forbes.com: ANALYSIS-Japan move could pull a prop from under the dollar   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
At that time, Japan was aggressively intervening in the market to curb the yen's rise so as to help Japanese exporters -- the main engine of the nation's economic recovery -- spending what was then a record 7.6 trillion yen.
The reason Japan pulled back is thought to be U.S. criticism of its massive intervention at a time when the rate was around 122 yen to the dollar, and a rise in Tokyo share prices which was attracting funds into Japan and easing concerns about the economy and exports.
Japan spent a record nine trillion yen in keeping the yen down in the first seven months of this year, although it stayed out of the market in August.
