GBP/JPY capitalizes on risk appetite
Improving market sentiment during the American session made it difficult for the JPY to find demand as a safe-haven. The upbeat macroeconomic data releases from the US revived hopes of a global economic recovery. Additionally, Biopharmaceutical New Technologies (BioNTech) announced on Wednesday that the COVID-19 vaccine that they co-developed with Pfizer yielded positive results in first human trials to further boost risk flows.
Reflecting the positive market environment, the 10-year US Treasury Bond yield is up more than 4% and the S&P 500 is gaining 0.6%.
Later in the day, the GfK Consumer Confidence data from the UK will be looked upon for fresh impetus. During the Asian session, Monetary Base and Foreign Bong Investment data will be featured in the Japanese economic docket.
