Treasury Yields and Trade War Fears Driving USD-JPY Price Action

The Japanese yen (JYN) returned to weakness against the US dollar as political uncertainty in the euro area fell at the end of the week that ended on June 1. The Japanese yen (FXY) closed the week at 109.55, falling 0.15% against the US dollar (UUP) for the week that ended on June 1. Many developments last week, including renewed tariffs from the US government, should have increased the demand for the yen due to its safe-haven characteristics, but investor indifference to these developments limited any gains.
