Japan’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) News
The Cabinet Office, Japan anticipates releasing stats for the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) news on Sunday (February 14, 2021). According to economists’ consensus, the GDP registered a reading of 2.3% in the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to the reading of 5.3%, in the quarter before.
The stats for Gross Domestic Product reflect the value of all the products, including services, goods, and structures produced inside Japan over a given time. The GDP is a broad measure of market activity. It provides an idea about the pace at which the Japanese economy progresses or deteriorates. Generally speaking, numbers better than expected are seen positive for the Japanese Yen (JPY). However, they suggest a bearish market for the EURJPY pair and vice versa.
Given the macro-economic outlook of the pair, selling it around current levels might be a sensible trading decision in the short term.
