The safe-haven currency Japanese yen is losing its power in the wake of faded safe-haven appeal. The EUR/JPY pair was facing strong resistance around 117.400 which got violated earlier today.
The safe-haven appeal for Japanese yen faded after China’s Commerce Ministry stated that its trade team is likely to have have high-level trade negotiations with the US in early October.
Until the trade talks are done, both nations are expected to refrain from inflicting additional tariffs which may give a boost to stock markets and may keep safe-haven assets bearish.
On the other hand, the single currency Euro is still getting stronger despite having weaker Manufacturing data from Germany.
Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that new orders in manufacturing had declined in July 2019 to a seasonally and calendar adjusted 2.7% on the prior month.
For June 2019, revision of the preliminary outcome resulted in an increase of 2.7% compared with May 2019 (provisional: +2.5%)
