The euro was 1 euro = 1.1215 to 16 dollars against the dollar.

Market officials said, "Expectations for an improvement in the employment situation in the United States have led to widespread observations that the timing of rate hikes in the United States will be accelerated, and the movement to sell the yen and buy the dollar has become dominant. Because of the policy of continuing the monetary easing policy, the difference in policy with the United States has made us aware of the widening interest rate differential between Japan and the United States, and the yen continues to be easy to sell.
