"The U.S. stands out for its positive returns. Ten-year Treasury rates were at 2.16% on May 31, vs. -0.09% for Japan and -0.20% for German equivalents. The dollar has been taking away the mantle of safe haven thanks to interest-rate differentials.
The flows into yen as a safe haven remains, but for us to see it go down to, say, 105, you’ll need to see a major geopolitical shock happen."
Quoted from Jane Foley, head of currency strategy at Rabobank International in London.
