Currency update: Yen slides to 24-year low against US dollar

Quick Summary

The increasingly polar policies have strengthened the greenback, and on Monday one dollar bought 135.

The yen’s trajectory may depend on how the US Fed acts in its September meeting, with worse-than-expected inflation figures for May raising expectations of further rate hikes.

It’s a level not seen since October 1998 during the Asian currency crisis, and marks a dramatic drop from January rates of around 115 yen per dollar.
