Yen bruised, hits 24-yaer low, as Japan's rates gap widens with rest of the world

Quick Summary AI Powered

HONG KONG: The yen hit a fresh 24-year low against the dollar on Wednesday, having taken another tumble overnight as yields continued to rise, in stark contrast to Japan's stubbornly low interest rates.

Wong said because the BOJ had not changed its policy at last week's meeting, these positions were now being unwound or reversed with some betting the yen would continue to weaken.

The currency has been weakening as higher energy prices put pressure on Japan's current account and because of the ever widening gap between yields on Japanese government bonds and U.S.Treasuries.
