USDJPY is trading at 115.97, down -0.05% on the day, having posted a daily high at 116.12 and low at 115.66. USDJPY pair returned to 117.53 at the start of the day but reversed course mid-European morning with the Japanese yen stimulating its rise in the US session, following the poor performance of American stocks and bonds. The return on the benchmark 10-year Treasuries fell 3 basis points to 2.38%, whilst the 30-year bond return was 3 basis points beneath at 2.97%, as fears about a “hard Brexit” and Chinese woes fueled demand for safe-haven assets.

Fundamental Overview

After several months of tepid growth in the revolving consumer credit, i.e., credit card, space, the latest monthly report from the Fed revealed that Americans went on a credit card-funded shopping spree in November, when total revolving credit exploded higher by a massive $11 billion, the highest November increase on record, and the second highest of the post-crash period. The credit card spending spike may explain why November, i.e., early holiday sales, were strong only to tumble in the second half of the holiday spending season as various retailers have already complained.
