The Japanese Yen remained little changed against major counterparts as the island nation reported its Domestic Producer Price Index in late hours of August 11, 2014 in London. The PPI rose by 0.3 percent month-on-month in June against expectations of 0.4 percent and a prior month figure of 0.2 percent. On a year-on-year basis, the figure printed at 4.3 percent, also slightly below expectations of 4.4 percent. Earlier in June, the same figure was reported at 4.6 percent, the highest since September 2008.

The Japanese Yen remained relatively unchanged likely because the data was close to market expectations and traders ignored the release, focusing their attentions on the GDP data release tomorrow. Senior Currency Strategist David Rodriguez discusses the GDP report further in his weekly forecast for the Japanese Yen.
