The euro rose higher against the yen on Friday, with the yen vulnerable amid a risk-on mood that has boosted the pair to fresh one-year highs at 124.45. The euro is set to complete a 10-day winning streak, boosted by the ECB’s COVID-19 stimulus package and market hopes of a quick post-pandemic recovery.
The yen, crushed by the positive market sentiment
Macroeconomic figures are starting to show the first signs of economic recovery, a sentiment confirmed by the unexpected increase on the US Non-Farm Payrolls report on Friday, that has boosted hopes of an economic recovery in the second half of the year. This context has driven investors away from safe havens like the yen, aiming for riskier asses.
Furthermore, the European Central Bank’s decision to step up its coronavirus rescue fund and Germany’s 130 billion stimulus package, both announced this week, have eased concerns about another debt crisis in peripheral countries, increasing hopes of progress towards a fiscal union, that has strengthened the euro.
