Yen Gains on Haven Demand as Longer Bonds Advance
Friday, 9 November 2018 15:53 WIB | CURRENCIES | Yen

Yen rises for the first time in three days as a decline in Asian shares boosts demand for haven assets. Longer-maturity bonds gain after the central bank refrained from reducing debt purchases.

USD/JPY falls 0.2% to 113.85, trimming this week's advance to 0.6%.

USD/JPY may test this year™s high of around 114.50 and head toward 115 if U.S. data improves, but investors will remain caution about the U.S.-China trade dispute before President Trump meets China™s Xi later this month.

Dollar was weighed down by exporter offers at 114.10 yen, while supported by macro and leveraged demand before larger bids for real-money accounts near 113.60, an Asia-based FX trader said.

JGB futures closed regular session unchanged at 150.69. Benchmark 10-year yields hold at 0.120%; 20-year yields drop 0.5bp to 0.660%.
