Market updates on August 5

Key events ahead:

American ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI – 17:00 MT (14:00 GMT) time

The weekend was hurtful for the market sentiment with the updates from the Chinese side. While Hong-Kong press informed that China questioned the chance of trade talks' continuation with the US, Beijing asked State buyers to halt US agricultural imports. It resulted in the risk aversion in the markets.

  • USD/JPY jumped to the lowest levels since January's flash crash. The first support for the pair lies at 105.65. After that, pay attention to the 105.3 level.
