Japanese Yen Mixed amid Signs of Economic Slowdown

The Japanese yen was mixed today despite the relatively negative sentiment amid investors. Usually, the yen rallied amid risk aversion due to its status as a safe haven.

Japanese Yen Stable, Gains on US Dollar

The Japanese yen was stable against other most-traded currencies today, even managing to gain on the US dollar, despite the generally positive market sentiment.

Japanese Yen Soft amid Risk Appetite, Manages to Hold Ground Against Some Rivals

Japanese Yen Weak on Friday, Strong Over Week

The Japanese yen was the weakest currency on the Forex market today but among the strongest for the week. With no unifying theme to drive markets, it is hard to pinpoint an exact reason for the currency’s poor performance, though some market analysts attributed it to the positive market sentiment that made the yen unnecessary in its role of a safe haven. As for Japan’s macroeconomic reports, they were not that bad but it hardly […]
