The Japanese Yen fell

The Japanese Yen fell against all of its major currency pairs yesterday, following the release of optimistic manufacturing data from the world's leading economies. This helped push-down demand for lower yielding assets such as the JPY and USD, and push-up demand for high yielding assets such as the GBP and EUR. Also, as the day dragged on, so did risk appetite. This led to the sell-off of the JPY and the buy-up of foreign assets. Analysts said this is trend is likely to continue as the global economy continues to recover.
