US stocks hold gains as Yen continues to weaken

The Yen has continued to lose ground today and now the USD/JPY has lifted above 145.75 earlier this afternoon. The high seen so far this evening has been set at 145.83. It is below that high just now though. The US stock markets are in the green this evening ahead of the close and we have across the board gains in all three major indexes. The weaker Yen is a driver for sure in terms of a risk positive dynamic and the the push higher in the dollar has carried the likes of the EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY higher with it too. Consequently we have a mixed picture for the US currency this evening, with gains for the EUR/USD and the GBP/USD at the same time as the USD/JPY presses higher. The USD/JPY is currently trading at 145.66
