Tankan data activity indicator was little worried about the market; the main pressure factor was the risk appetite increase on the yen, noted on the stock markets, amid the good statistics on the Chinese economy.

The “Bulls”' return to the stock exchange that supports the demand for the dollar/yen. The positive trend continuation in the futures Nikkei 225 stock index cheered investors to open long positions on the U.S. currency. In this case, we can expect the dollar/yen return to 102nd figure.
