Other than the BOJ, the recently worrisome headlines from China’s 13th National People’s Congress (NPC) concerning Hong Kong also weigh on the market’s risk-tone.
Earlier during the day, the US Senate Majority Leader McConnell said that further China crackdown on Hong Kong will intensify the Senate’s interest in re-examining the US-China relationship.
Further to note that the NPC stopped offering any target for the next year’s GDP while pleding to implement the US trade deal.
That said, the US 10-year treasury yields remain soft near 0.675% whereas Japan’s NIKKEI drop 0.18% to 20,510 by the press time.
An ascending trend line from May 07, at 107.55 now, can check sellers during the further declines while highs marked during mid-April and May 19, around 108.10, become the key resistance.
