Recommended for beginners to advanced users. Since extreme price movements are unlikely to occur, it is unlikely that all funds will disappear with one shot. Conversely, it tends to be difficult to get a large price range, so if you want to get a large price range with one shot, we recommend pound yen or euro yen.

Economic indicators to watch out for

As an economic indicator, the economic indicators on the Japanese side are at a level where you do not have to worry too much. Even if it moves, is it about the Bank of Japan’s policy    rate, GDP, and unemployment rate?

Rather, the US economic indicators are more influential and are affected by all currency pairs, so let’s take a closer look. The US dollar is a key currency, and it is a currency that moves not only as an economic indicator but also during politics and war. It will move the market as a whole, so always be careful.

When Japanese Yen is bought

Japan is also said to be a country whose nationality cannot change. Since it is such a country, it often fluctuates for external reasons rather than the influence of economic indicators. The timing of yen buying is very advanced when the world situation becomes unstable such as infectious diseases, financial shocks, and wars.

Other influential indicators

US Treasuries (10 years, 30 years), Nikkei Stock Average, crude oil prices, etc. will also have an effect. Also, in the case of the United States, as it is called the police of the world, it is very sensitive to the influence of world affairs. Please note that some economic sanctions and military activities can move the dollar significantly.
