EUR/JPY - This is the forex quote for the Euro vs. Japanese Yen exchange rate. EUR (the 'base currency') is quoted in terms of JPY (the 'counter currency'). The Yen is a historically low-yielding currency, making an attractive vehicle to fund carry trades (where traders borrow cheaply in JPY to buy higher-yielding currencies, including EUR.
