- 10-year US Treasury bond yield stages decisive recovery on Tuesday.
- Nasdaq Composite adds more than 2% boosted by risk-on flows.
- US Dollar Index closes in on 98 handle.
The USD/JPY pair extends its daily rally during the American session as risk-on flows continue to dominate the markets. As of writing, the pair was trading at its highest level since January 24th at 109.42, adding 0.7% on a daily basis.
Easing concerns over the negative impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the Chinese and the global economy provided a boost to the risk appetite on Tuesday. The 10-year US Treasury bond yield, which generally showed a strong positive correlation with the USD/JPY pair, is up nearly 5%. Furthermore, Wall Street's main indexes are posting decisive gains with the Nasdaq Composite leading the way with a daily gain of 2.1%.
USD outperforms its major rivals
On the other hand, the greenback is preserving its strength to help the pair push higher.
Today's data from the US showed that the ISM-NY Business Conditions Index in January rose to 45.8 in January from 39.1 in December and the IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism for February rose to 59.8 from 57.4. The US Dollar Index was last seen trading at 0.16% on the day at 97.96.
There won't be any significant macroeconomic data releases from Japan during the Asian session and the risk sentiment is likely to continue to drive the pair.
