The Japanese Cabinet Office announced Monday that it has left the monthly economic assessment unchanged for a third straight month although upped its assessment of business conditions.
“Businesses still see many aspects remaining severe, but there are signs of picking up. The upward revision is the first since March 2021, while the assessment of other components was largely unchanged from June.”
“The government left its near-term outlook unchanged, with the economy expected to show further signs of picking up, supported by fiscal and monetary policies and the improvement in overseas economies.”
“Full attention should be given to the "movement of infections that would affect the domestic and foreign economy," adding that attention should be given to financial and capital markets movements.”
USD/JPY jumps back above 110.00
Despite rising covid cases in Japan and globally, the government kept its economic assessment unchanged in July, which failed to inspire the JPY bulls.
The uptick in USD/JPY could be mainly linked to a fresh leg higher in the US dollar across the board, as risk-aversion deepens in the European session.
