The spot now trades within touching distance from the 121.00 handle. The JPY turned out to be one of the biggest gainers on Thursday on account of the risk aversion in the markets across the globe.

However, Fed’s Yellen reiterated on Thursday that rates could rise in 2015, which pushed up Treasury yields in the US. The European stocks rallied more than 2% and pushed up US index futures as well. Consequently, the safe haven assets like the JPY took a hit.
