In this USDJPY analysis, the pair climbed to one-week tops in the last hour, with bulls now eyeing a move towards reclaiming the key 110.00 psychological mark.
May 30, 2019, | SQUARED DIRECT – The Yen fell yesterday despite the falling global equities and US Treasury yields collapsing, spreading concerns that the US economy could be at the verge of recession. But the Dollar/Yen traders looked unfazed despite the deteriorating market conditions.
This divergence means one of the two things: either the equity market is wrong and we will likely see a big correction to the upside or the Yen traders are not aware of the real danger the market is in. Today we will likely see this divergence to converge after the US releases the GDP numbers which will likely put an end to this uncertainty in the marketplace.
