USD continues to trade in a downward trend against JPY, despite significant growth against other competitors.
This happens only due to the growth in demand for the yen as a "safe haven" in a situation of global tension amid the introduction of the new US sanctions. But the current US policy can cause serious damage to the dollar because it ceases to be considered the most stable currency. The American economy is currently on the rise: this year, all major economic indicators are growing. Last week, strong data were published on retail sales, industrial production, and the labor market.
This week, Japan will release data on Manufacturing PMI and the index of leading indicators. The US will respond with data on the labor market, the construction market, and orders for durable goods.
Support and resistance
One and a half weeks ago, the pair left the ascending channel, but the probability of its return and preservation of the upward trend in the medium term is high.
