USD/JPY – Eases Further, BOJ Meeting Next Week, 107.00-108.50

April 24, 2020

The US Dollar eased modestly against the Yen to finish in late New York at 107.65 (107.75 yesterday). Earlier in the New York trading day, a report from Japan’s Nikkei that the Bank of Japan will discuss scrapping its cap on government bond purchases at its policy meeting next week (27 April) saw USD/JPY spike to 108.042 overnight highs.
The release of weak US data weighed on this currency pair. The number of Americans who claimed Unemployment benefits reached 4.427 million bringing the 5-week total to 26.45 million. Which effectively cancels out all the new jobs created over the past 10 years. USD/JPY slipped to 107.347 before climbing to settle at 107.65.
