The yen sank to a 28-month low as data showing a decline in Japanese consumer prices fanned speculation the central bank will heed government calls to step up cash infusions to end deflation.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Nomura Holdings Inc. cut forecasts for the Japanese currency citing stimulus plans from newly installed Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s plan. JPMorgan revised its yen projections today, saying the currency will fall to 90 against the dollar in the second quarter next year as Japan’s trade surplus worsens and overseas investors factor in changes under Abe’s administration. Its previous estimate was 83.
