The Yen fell to its lowest level in a week vs. the EUR. However, the EUR/JPY eventually finished yesterday's trading 30 pips lower at the 133.18 level. In the coming days, it seems that the Japanese currency may slide as global equities are expected to rise. Analysts expect this to reduce demand for the JPY as a safe-haven. This behavior was already seen on Monday, as the JPY dropped vs. the AUD and the NZD.
The recent election victory of the Democrat Party has led to much speculation amongst investors that the JPY may slide in the coming weeks and months. Many people believe that this inexperienced party will increase taxes too high, and will be unable to handle Japan's finances well. Therefore, these analysts conclude that there may be a downward spiral of the Japanese currency in the near future.
