Scattered 10,000-yen notesThe Japanese yen gained against majors today, continuing to recover after the big drop on Tuesday. The yen performed a bit worse versus commodity currencies as the market sentiment stabilized after China’s better-than-expected trade report.

As for domestic data, Japan’s Ministry of Finance released a current account report for June. It showed an increase to ¥1.94 trillion on a seasonally adjusted basis from ¥1.31 trillion in the previous month. The actual value was higher than ¥1.76 trillion predicted by experts.

USD/JPY dropped from 106.26 to 105.96 as of 11:38 GMT today. EUR/JPY declined from 118.99 to 118.63.
