JPY futures: some consolidation seems likely
Open interest in JPY futures markets increased by more than 2K contracts on Friday from the previous day’s final 227,818 contracts, reverting two consecutive daily drops, according to CME Group. On the other hand, volume shrunk noticeably by around 35.6K contracts, recording the second drop in a row.
