USD/JPY (United States dollar versus the Japanese yen) is the second most-traded currency pair in the world, representing approximately 15% of all foreign exchange trades. Japan’s currency is the 3rd most popular in the world, trailing behind the US dollar and the euro. It is also a top international reserve currency, both within and beyond Southeast Asia. Both the USA and Japan are two major economic powers: reigning at number one and three, respectively. Together, they account for over 30% of world domestic product; for a major portion of imports and exports of goods and services and a better part of international investment. Furthermore, the economic conditions in both countries have a strong impact on the rest of the world. USD/JPY parity is known for its exceptional liquidity and high volatility, which makes it a common constituent of many investors' portfolios.
