In the Tokyo foreign exchange market on the 4th, the dollar was bought due to the rise in long-term interest rates in the United States, and the yen exchange rate temporarily weakened to the low 107 yen level, which is the level since July last year. ..

Market officials said, "

The long-term interest rates in the United States have risen again against the backdrop of the

progress of vaccination against the new corona virus in the United States and

the view that the economy will improve due to additional economic measures, so the yen is sold and the interest rate is high. The movement to buy is progressing. "
