The Japanese yen has found stability against the US dollar, with the current USD/JPY exchange rate at 149.27.
JPY values saw an uptick following news about potential interventions.
During the previous autumn, Japanese authorities intervened in currency trading when the yen slipped to 145.90 against the US dollar. This time, the dollar reached 150.11 JPY, but no concrete measures have been taken as of yet.
The Japanese Ministry of Finance announced yesterday that they were closely monitoring the situation. This statement could imply a range of actions, from maintaining a passive watch to actively engaging in discussions about potential financial interventions in the market.
The primary factor influencing the weakening of the JPY exchange rate is the significant divergence in interest rates between the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan.
