The trade deal reached between  Japan and the United States earlier this year was announced by Japane to be expected to boost Japan’s economy  by about 0.8%, a much-needed increment which would likely increase the value of the Yen which otherwise trades as a proxy  to market risk appetite.  The US and Japan  are seeking to put the trade pact, which was signed last week, into force on Jan. 1, a deal  that cuts tariffs on U.S. farm goods, Japanese machine tools and other products while further staving off the threat of higher US  car duties.
