Japan, on the other hand, ended its national emergency back on May 25. However, figures for its reports were still stagnant. Unemployment rate is expected to hit 3.1% for June.
The pair will break down from a major support line, sending the pair lower towards its all-time low. Despite the Federal Reserve retaining its current benchmark interest rate of 0.25% in yesterday’s report, the US dollar is still bound to fall. The catalysts were the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and initial jobless claims reports today, July 30. The largest economy in the world is expected to publish 34.1% contraction for the second quarter of 2020. If the expectations came close to the actual figure, this will be America’s largest quarterly drop in history.

Two (2) weeks ago, it posted a 12.6% contraction on its Q2 GDP, a 41.2% annualized decline from the same quarter in the prior year. Also, the US-China tension could take a toll on the economy of other Asian countries like Singapore.
