Weekly Top Gainers/Losers: Canadian dollar and Japanese yen

18/3/2021

Top Gainers – The World Market

Over the past 7 days, prices for oil, non-ferrous metals and other mineral raw materials decreased but still remained high. As a result, the currencies of the commodity countries strengthened: the Canadian dollar, the Australian and New Zealand dollars, the Mexican peso, and the South African rand. The Japanese yen weakened after the release of negative economic indicators: Balance of Trade, Industrial Production and a number of other indicators of business activity in the industry. Moreover, the yen was negatively affected by Haruhiko Kuroda's (the head of the BoJ) belief that Japanese inflation is unlikely to reach the +2% target by 2024. In January 2021, it was -0.6% in annual terms. Investors believe that the Bank of Japan will continue its soft monetary policy.
