    After moving steady around 111.40, USD/JPY broke to the downside and fell below yesterday’s lows. The pair dropped under 110.00 and bottomed at 109.81, the lowest level since October 31, 2014. Afterward it jumped in a few minutes to 110.40 and it was trading around 110.10.

    The yen again is among the top performers in the currency market for the second day in a row, amid risk aversion and following comments against intervention from Japanese officials. In the US, the Dow Jones was falling 0.25%.

    Traders are waiting for the FOMC minutes and also will pay attention to some FED officials that are scheduled to speak today.
