10-year US T-bond yield extends rally
The sharp upsurge witnessed in the US Treasury bond yields seems to be fueling USD/JPY's upside on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the US Dollar Index is posting small daily gains at 90.55 following a drop to 90.11 earlier in the day.

Meanwhile, Wall Street's main indexes started the day in the positive territory but the USD remains strong against its peers.
In the early Asian session, Merchandise Trade Balance and Machinery orders data from Japan will be looked upon for fresh impetus.
