This week, investors will remain cautious amid geopolitical uncertainty and trade tensions - traders will assess the situation in Syria and trade conflict between the U.S. and China.

The USDJPY financial instrument is especially susceptible to fundamental factors, and also differs by high volatility. The monetary policy of Bank of Japan, the decision of the Ministry of Finance of Japan and U.S. Fed has the greatest impact on the price movement of this currency pair.

The economy of Japan is export-oriented, and the economy of the USA depends on internal consumption. The Asian stock market, in particular, the Japanese stock index of Nikkei 225 has a considerable impact on this trading symbol. Thanks to the raised volatility of the tool and sensitivity to economic events, the technical analysis together with fundamental is applied to forecast the movement of its price. The pair is most liquid in Asian session working hours.
