Economic factors – New Zealand’s dollar will often move in relation to economic, political, and often commercial movements within the country. The yen also relies on economic factors, with interest rates, unemployment numbers, trade, and inflation all having an effect.

Reserve – The yen is often used as a reserve currency, but the Bank of Japan’s tendency to intervene can apply downward pressure to the value of the yen.
