Yen edges towards 4-month high vs dollar as world stocks face correction
Friday, 9 February 2018 08:18 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLAR YenDolar AS

The yen neared a four-month high against the dollar on Friday as global stock markets plunged again, triggering a rush into traditional safe-haven currencies.

The worsening risk sentiment and higher volatility also means many market players are now being forced to close their existing positions rather than making new bets.

The dollar slipped to 108.56 yen, edging near its four-month low of 108.28 hit on Jan. 26, and having lost 1.3 percent so far this week.

A break of that level could open the way for a test of its 2017 low of 107.32.

The euro stood at $1.2248, slipping further from its 3-year high of $1.2538 hit on Jan. 25.

The British pound gave up more than a half of its Thursday™s gains made after the Bank of England said it was likely to raise interest rates sooner and by more than it thought only three months ago.

Cable stood at $1.3932, off Thursday™s high of $1.4067 though it kept some distance from this week™s low of $1.3838.

Against the U.S. dollar, the franc traded at 0.9350 franc per dollar, edging near last week™s 2-1/2-year high of 0.9257.

The flight to safe-haven currencies could continue if stock markets continue to slide.
