USD/JPY - 88.66.. Dlr rose abv y'day's 88.64 high to 88.71 partly due to latest report after newspaper surveys by the Asahi, Nikkei n Yomiuri which showed the embattling DPJ wud likely win about 50 or even fewer seats in Sunday's upper house election, well short of Kan's target of the 54 seats the party has up for re-election. However, DPJ's Secretary-general Yukio Edano said the PM wud stay in his job regardless of the party's result. Overseas names were spotted selling the Japanese yen vs usd n other currencies, bids have been raised to 88.40-30 whilst Japanese exporters' offers at 88.60-80 are being absorbed slowly.
