The Yen's high volatility continued yesterday, as it saw contradicting trends against the major currencies. On one hand, the JPY rose 15 pips against the USD yesterday, as the pair closed at the 97.75 level. On the other hand, the Yen dropped over 50 pips against the EUR, closing at 137.86 level.
It appears that lately the Yen is mostly affected by its counterpart currencies. The USD is currently very weak, and thus the Yen consistently appreciates against it. However, the EUR seems quite strong, and its recent appreciation has pushed down the JPY.
Looking ahead to today, traders are expected to follow the main news events from the US and Western Europe, and the commencement of the G20 Meeting in Germany later today. Traders are advised to follow these events very closely as they may set the pace for JPY trading later today.
