USD/JPY sideways into closing hours; investor jitters prevail

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Barcelona) - USD/JPY is trading at 101.33, down -0.01% on the day, having posted a daily high at 101.40 and low at 101.21.



Japan’s currency, JPY, is underpinned by investors jitters as a safe haven while markets are still focusing on Portuguese bank Banco Espirito (BES). However, analysts at TD Securities explained that the panic of yesterday has subdued a little as the Bank of Portugal stated that BES had enough capital. “This has led to Portuguese spreads to bunds narrowing around 10bps on the day but the spread is still around 30bps wider than last week. Portuguese stocks are over 2% higher on the day and have led European stocks higher”.
