Japan's industrial production dropped
The above graph is line chart of Japan\\`s industrial production in primary Y-axis and USDJPY in secondary Y-axis from January 2015 to November 2015.
Japans Industrial output registered its first drop in three months as it slumped 1% in Nov 2015 as against an expansion of 1.40% in Oct 2015. The economic data is coming on a mixed bag as economy has expanded but industrial data was disappointment. Meanwhile economic slowdown in China and other Asian nations has hurt Japans exports and wage. However, the weak yen has bolstered company earnings.

Going ahead if US continues go for gradual rate hike, dollar is expected to become stronger which can make Yen again weak. It is imperative to monitor the FED policy meet scheduled on 27th and 28th January 2016.
