USDJPY – BUY – 19th May 2020 (Closed)

Good morning Forex Kings,

Markets have turned risk on over night. AUD, NZD, CAD & EUR all rallied higher against the USD.

The DXY and JPY faced significant downside throughout the evening.

The EUR could be one to watch this week as Merkel offered a break through deal to shelf the EU from the corona virus fallout. The German leader proposed a $546 billion fund for economic recovery.

As markets begin to reopen crude oil continues its run higher, global equities also enjoyed a positive start to the week.

Today we are looking at the USDJPY as it has broken a key trend.
