Money trader work in front of the electric board showing the yen-dollar exchange rate at a money market brokerage firm in Tokyo, Japan, Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011. Expectations Japan will intervene in currency markets grew Tuesday as the yen's rise to a near record high threatened to stall economic recovery in the aftermath of the March earthquake. The dollar, weakened by the dimming U.S. economic outlook, fell as low as 76.29 yen Monday. It hit a record post-World War II low of 76.25 yen in the days following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. (AP Photo/Shuji Kajiyama) less
