Roy Teo, senior foreign exchange strategist at ABN Amro, thinks the yen will continue to weaken and set an upside target of ¥107, Financial Times reports.

Looking at Japanese markets, Teo argued that the Bank of Japan will “cut the policy rate from -0.1 per cent to -0.2 per cent next year,” putting more pressure on the yen.
