This 26 March EURJPY Technical Analysis shows that the pair is trading on the front foot in Asia, tracking the improvement in the risk sentiment on reports the US and China are negotiating to improve the US access to Chinese markets.
26 March, GKFX – The S&P 500 futures are up 10 points or 0.38 percent, indicating a relief rally could be in the offing. Consequently, the Japanese Yen is being offered across the board.
The data calendar is light with just the German import price index (Feb), scheduled for release at 06:00 GMT. Meanwhile, Bank of Japan (BOJ) governor Kuroda will speak in the parliament later today. The FX markets will focus on whether the US and/or China will soften or harden their stance on trade.
The relief rally in the risk assets will likely gather traction if the US-China negotiations progress to avoid a trade war.
