Analysis of Major Moves

The substantial gain of the Chinese Yuan against the Yen might reflect market reactions to economic indicators or policy announcements from China or Japan, which investors should monitor closely. Such a robust performance by the Yuan suggests increased investor confidence in the Chinese economy or potential capital inflows into China.
