Yen plunges even as Japan says all options are on the table on currency decline

The yen slid for a fourth day on Thursday after a meeting of senior Japanese officials to discuss the currency’s slide failed to generate a change in sentiment among traders.

The currency fell 0.3% to ¥144.10 per dollar in a fourth day of decline. Foreign exchange chief Masato Kanda sent the country’s strongest warning yet on the yen’s recent decline, but suggested the official stance was broadly unchanged from a statement made after a three-party meeting in June.
