This is the forex quote for the Swiss Franc - Japanese Yen cross pair. Both of these currencies are often viewed as safe-haven currencies and funding currencies due to their unique financial properties and low interest rates. CHF/JPY reached its lows during the 2008 financial crisis, when it hit ¥74.65. Since then, the pair has traded higher far beyond this level in light of aggressive monetary Japanese easing.
The smack down of global risk appetite has reinvigorated the Japanese Yen, which is now on the cusp of making significant technical strides versus several currencies.
