On Thursday, the Japanese yen soared in Asia because current account figures gave support in thin trade ahead of major bank gathering in Europe later in the day.

The currency pair USD/JPY showed 114.12, sliding 0.15%, following the unadjusted current account for March coming in at a surplus of ¥2.908 trillion, which is wider than the ¥2.643 trillion observed.

Estimating the greenback’s value versus a trade-weighted basket of six key currencies, the Us dollar index tacked on 0.01%, hitting 99.51.

Overnight, the greenback stood still versus six main currencies because market participants reacted negatively to Trump’s recent decision to sack FBI Director James Comey.
