FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Yen continued to underperform, being again the main laggard in the Asian session. Fresh cycle lows were developed after the country's read-out in prices came softer-than-expected, vindicating that bolder easing policies to stimulate prices higher will be needed, which implies room for a lower Yen on expectations of more unorthodox policies. Aussie and Kiwi, worst performers on Thursday after the Yen, were also relegated to poor performances.
