USD softened on Tuesday

Latest news

  • The US is going to unveil the much-awaited $1.9 trillion stimulus package. US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen claimed that Biden’s stimulus should help to speed up a “very strong” US economic recovery, and also emphasized that “there are tools” to deal with inflation.
  • As a result, the market sentiment slightly improved, but investors remain cautious as they think a huge stimulus may drive the economy to overheat and inflation to get out of control.  
  • Nasdaq retreated after Monday’s deep slump. S&P 500 climbed as well but stayed below the resistance of 3,850. 
  • US Treasury yields rose on expectations for higher inflation and faster economic rebound. The US dollar index reached November’s highs.
  • Oil dropped due to the strong greenback and an attack on the world’s largest crude terminal in Saudi Arabia.

USD/JPY’s rally is unstoppable! It has broken the 200-day MA of 109.00. Therefore, the way up to the high of May 2020 at 109.50 is clear. However, the RSI hit the 70.00 level, indicating the pair is overbought. Besides, the price has surpassed the upper line of Bollinger Bands a few days ago. Therefore, we may see a pullback soon.
