Bearish Marabou in USD/JPY – Good time to Sell?
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
USD/JPY surged 2.7% to 111.32 before easing to 109 zones, recouping most of its decline from late February. The latest coronavirus updates reported widespread outbreak in the UK and Italy. In contrast, the news of Gilead’s Remdesivir medicine being tested to cure Covid-19 left a little positive impact on the trading sentiment.
Consequently, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones futures are declining nearly 0.50% by press time. Now it’s going to be interesting to see if the pair can attract any dip-buying at lower levels or continues with its retracement slide due to absent relevant market moving economic releases. Overall, the safe haven appeal of the Japanese yen is getting diminished as traders’ focus stays on the US dollar, which is currently being treated as a safe haven asset. As a result, USD/JPY pair is trading bullish.
