Why the drop in USDJPY? Markit say that input prices moderated from Sep’s peak, and prices charged fell to the slowest for six months. That’s the hurricane gains washed out, and some. We trade around 113.80 after testing 114.00.

It’s a good report otherwise but we’re all about the inflation at the moment.
