YEN SURGES: G7 Finance Ministers Make Shock Announcement That Earlier Statement On Currency Was Misinterpreted

But wait!

In headlines that are just crossing the wire right now, the G7 is saying that the statement is being misinterpreted, that there IS concern about excessive yen moves.

Here’s a look at USDJPY. You can see the dollar diving against the yen.
