“Japanese data failed to impress. The Trade Balance posted a surplus of ¥983.1 billion in March, surpassing expectations, although the April Eco Watchers Survey Outlook contracted to 41.7.”  

“The US will publish the April Producer Price Index and Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended May 7, foreseen at 490K.”

“The USD/JPY pair is bullish in the near-term and would likely extend its advance in the upcoming hours. Much will depend on how US Treasury yields develop.”
