USD / JPY mounts to falls in the Nikkei despite the rise in Japanese exports.
Nikkei is tied to declines in international stock markets, boosting demand for Japanese yen.
• Japanese exports increase from 1.3% to 11.3%.
• USD / JPY broke the relevant support at 111.50.
During the day yesterday the American stock markets presented a remarkable fall that was generated, mainly, by falls in the financial sector and in the energy sector. These falls were replicated by the various exchanges at the international level, where the Asian stock market was no exception.
The Nikkei had setbacks between yesterday and today of more than 500 pips, which led the index to break the 19,000. The falls failed to be slowed by the strong rise in Japanese exports that show a significant recovery within the Japanese economy and augur good growth figures for this first quarter of 2017.
