On Thursday, the EUR was faltering against the JPY. Nevertheless, the pair managed to hold positions despite a growing demand for the safe haven asset amid not so positive macroeconomic publications from the eurozone and the US.
During the morning session, the pair started declining after mixed Consumer Price Index statistics for August were released in Japan: the indicator remained unchanged at 0.2%.
