Japan's currency traded at 133.45 per EUR early morning, from 133.47 yesterday in New York. It traded at 91.02 per USD from 91.05. The Yen is being sold as investors move away from risk averse trading and into higher yielding assets following encouraging economic data from the US which signaled the recession is coming to an end.

The release of the Industrial Production report today at 13:15 GMT is predicted to show an increase of 0.6%, the most since October. This will likely contribute to further sell off of the Yen versus its riskier counterparts.
