Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) highly sensitive to stock markets and risk appetite
The US dollar has rolled over against the Japanese yen in early trading on Wednesday as we continue to see a major churn when it comes to this pair.
Ultimately, this is a market that will continue to be very noisy based upon the geopolitical situation between the United States and China being somewhat fluid, and of course stock markets all over the place, although reaching the highs in the United States we do have some major divergence when it comes to the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100. In other words, there are far too many landmines out there to feel comfortable buying a lot of risk.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
