There are no strong reasons for the yen to be performing well against the USD but it is due to the current situation of the US that the dollar’s price is dipping. Still, many analysts believe that the strong bullish movement of the Japanese yen is short-term.
The Japanese Yen’s Bullish Movement may End Soon

Even when the global situation of the economy is not looking so well, which greatly influences the trading value of the USD, the long-term predictions are not in favor of the yen.
