still having a hazard on KRW. North Korea's missile issue was buried under Fed's 'march' statement. It seems already affected among the market. Guessing should be careful on tomorrow's movement.

Almost huge issue on today was missile about North Korea. But it little affected into market. Furthermore, already introduced signals have been prevailing on the market either.

LOL as a Korean person, let me give you simple advice, Don't believe what mainstream media is talking about North Korea, This is usual thing for Koreans whenever the US government has something to distract people from domestic issue to elsewhere. If I were you , I would sell dollar until this Friday when we actually will see that will happen with debt ceiling. . . If you don't know the Korean history, don't trade Won.

From my perspective, the dollar is going to crash from here to 1110, that's my guess.

Target is now 1250. Korea's competitiveness is disappearing.
