The yen fell for a fifth day against the dollar even after a representative of the opposition party, the Bank of Japan Governor Masaaki Shirakawa said that the proposals for currency depreciation are unrealistic.

The dollar rose against most of the 16 most traded currencies as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned that the U.S. economy could fall into recession, in case, if lawmakers can not escape the so-called "financial failure."
