Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso has said that the yen's sharp drop since November has been too fast. "The yen's sudden move from 78 or 79 to 90 was not something we anticipated," Aso said. His comments come amid international criticism of the falling yen and talk of "currency wars," and might be a sop ahead of a G20 meeting next week. Following the remarks, the yen is +1.2% vs the dollar at 92.464.
