FXStreet (Guatemala) - Eric Theoret, CFA, CMT FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained that the Yen is trading around levels last seen in early November following Wednesday’s remarkable 1.2% rally, the largest one day gain since September 1st. Key Quotes: "Wednesday’s rally underscores JPY’s sensitivity to the broader market tone in an environment that appears to be currently dominated by technicals and positioning.
