An employee of a foreign exchange dealing room in Tokyo looks at a screen displaying the U.S. dollar is traded at 77,30 yen Monday, Oct. 31, 2011 shortly after Japanese monetary authorities intervened in the currency market to weaken the yen. The dollar has jumped against the yen following the intervention. Monday's action, confirmed by Finance Minister Jun Azumi, came after the Japanese currency had surged to a post-World War II high of 75.32 yen against the dollar earlier Monday.
