Market concerns over a depreciating Yuan pushing US-China trade tensions to dangerous levels are sending shockwaves across financial markets, with risk aversion boosting appetite for safe-haven currencies. The Japanese Yen was a trader’s best friend today after appreciating against every single G10 currency excluding the Swiss Franc, Danish Krone and Euro. With fears rising over intensifying trade tensions negatively impacting global growth, the Japanese Yen could take a shot at claiming King Dollar’s throne.

Focusing on the technical picture, the USDJPY is bearish on the weekly charts as there have been consistently lower lows and lower highs. An appreciating Yen has sent the USDJPY crashing towards levels not seen since January 2019 below 106.00. A solid weekly close below 106.00 is likely to encourage a decline towards 104.70

EURJPY stumbles to 2 year low

An appreciating Yen sent the EURJPY crashing to levels not seen since April 2017 below 118.00 on Monday morning.

Although prices later rebounded towards 118.64, the currency remains heavily bearish on the daily and weekly charts. Sustained weakness below the 119.00 level should inspire bears to attack 118.30 and 117.50. Should 119.00 prove to be unreliable resistance, the EURJPY could push back towards 120.50.

Commodity spotlight – Gold

There was no place like Gold today as Yuan weakness fuelled concerns over US-China trade tensions reaching new heights.

The precious metal has blasted to a fresh 6 year high above $1460 and is likely to extend gains as trade uncertainty accelerates the flight to safety. Given how Gold remains technical and fundamentally bullish, the path of least resistance for the precious metal points north. A solid daily close above $1460, may open the doors towards $1485 and $1500, respectively.
