General overview

We noted the corrective movement continuation in the Tokyo stock market. Investors continue to take profits on the long positions that cause demand for the Japanese yen. The US durable goods orders positive data did not provide any support to the US dollar. Bulls are inclined to update the historic high within the index S & P500 on the US stock market which will contribute to the carry trade transactions development through the Japanese yen.
