Japanese Yen Soft After Data Suggests Economy Weakens

The Japanese yen was generally soft today, though the currency has trimmed losses against some of its rivals by now and even managed to gain on the euro, which itself was very vulnerable.

Canadian Dollar Soft After Crude Oil Drops 2%

The Japanese yen was trading either flat or slightly lower versus its most-trade rivals today as traders were cautious, waiting for the outcome of the meeting between the leaders of the United States and China at the Group of Twenty summit.
