Japanese Yen Flat amid Directionless Trading

The Japanese yen was largely flat today as trading was somewhat directionless during the current trading sessions, and markets were in a consolidation mode. Over the longer-term, though, the currency should be well-supported by factors that are negative to the risk sentiment.
