Forecast for USD/JPY on July 22, 2020

USD/JPY

The Japanese yen strengthened by 45 points on Tuesday - investors began to buy it on fears of a new wave of falling stock markets. Stock indexes feel overheated despite seemingly optimistic news from around the world, such as the agreement within the EU on a mutual aid pact, good growth in construction in China, positive tests of coronavirus vaccines. The US stock market closed mixed yesterday: S&P 500 0.17%, Nasdaq -0.81%. Perhaps, investors may prefer to take profits before the US administration meets regarding a new aid package worth 1 trillion dollars.
