Current trend

Yesterday the pair slightly corrected up after a significant fall the day earlier when their decisions on interest rates made the Bank of Japan and US Fed.

The Japanese regulator left the rate unchanged while markets expected its further cut into a negative -0.15%. At the same time, the central bank introduced a target for 10-year government bond yields, which it is going to keep around 0%. The US Fed, in its turn, also kept its monetary policy unchanged that matched expectations of the majority of experts.

In addition, the Yen was supported by strong data on the Nikkei Manufacturing PMI that came out today in Japan. In September, the index grew from 49.5 to 50.3 points while economists forecasted a decline to 49.3 points.
