UBS asks:

What will be the closing value of the US dollar to Japanese yen exchange rate on 9 August 2024?

Started May 16, 2024 02:00PM UTC
Closing Aug 09, 2024 07:01AM UTC

The Japanese yen has weakened substantially against the US dollar in 2024, and market observers are not sure how far the Bank of Japan may go to defend its currency (CNBC, Yahoo [Bloomberg]). The question will be suspended on 8 August 2024 and the outcome determined using data as reported in the US by Trading Economics (Trading Economics, set to "6M"). On 9 May 2024, the closing value was 155.39.
