USD/JPY

USD/JPY - Yen is one of the most traded currencies in the world, especially due to its low interest rate since the Yen is used in carry trades.

Doubling this money supply is devaluing the Yen, boosting exports; but, increasing prices of imports at the same time, especially for commodities.
