Greenback strengthens against yen on US softer approach to Chinese investment

On Wednesday, the White House uncovered that it wouldn’t consider putting another 25% limits on Chinese ownership in American tech-related businesses as reports had hinted earlier this week.

The prospects of soaring American interest rates were also cited as backing the evergreen buck.
The Japanese yen headed south on Friday. The currency pair USD/JPY soared by 0.18% being worth 110.69 because trade tensions between America and its key trading partners receded.
At the same time the Chinese Yuan, which keeps going down this week, is still in focus due to the fact that on Friday reports suggested that China’s officials would step in and try to slow the dive in its national currency if it dives toward 6.7 per greenback.

On Friday, the currency pair USD/CNY demonstrated an outcome of 6.6192, edging down by 0.11%.
Meanwhile, market experts and market participants are waiting for Chinese economic data to be released tomorrow. That’s one of the most long-awaited readings after trade tensions between the world’s two leading economies have worsened.
