This ETN delivers a way for investors to bet on the performance of the Japanese yen relative to the U.S. dollar. While JYN may not offer the type of volatility short-term traders seek, it can be potentially useful for hedging existing currency exposure or for betting on a longer-term appreciation. Moreover, JYN may have appeal as a safe haven in environments where the dollar is under pressure. A couple structural elements of JYN are noteworthy. As an ETN, this product is exposed to credit risk, and may also be subject to unique tax treatment. A major attraction is the fact that performance is linked directly to the exchange rate, removing any nuances associated with forward contracts or other instruments and making this ETN a "pure play" on the JPY/USD exchange rate.
