Yen slumps against dollar

Japanese yen slumps to fresh 38-year low against the U.S. dollar

On Friday 28th June 2024, the Japanese yen dropped to its lowest point in 38 years, surpassing the 161 threshold against the dollar reached for the first time since December 1986.

The yen has faced challenges, slipping beyond the 160 mark again.

Since the Bank of Japan concluded its negative interest rate policy and reportedly abandoned its yield curve control policy in March 2024, the yen has been on a consistent decline.

After this policy change, the yen breached the 150 level against the U.S. dollar and hit 160 in late April 2024, which prompted intervention by the country’s finance ministry.
