The JPY might surge incase the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, especially in the United States, which is by far the biggest economy around the world. As of today, the US is spurring more demand for anti-risk assets. Extra efforts to somehow mitigate the spread of COVID-19 mean the extension or reimplementation of the lockdown measures that are adversely affecting the economy. Coronavirus has sent almost all global economic activities to the ground.

Essentially, the United States comprises less than 20% of the total of confirmed cases around the world. Hotbeds such as Florida and Texas are currently reporting very high numbers.

OPEC Meeting

It is yet to be seen whether the results of the upcoming OPEC meeting will nudge the Japanese yen higher. The joint monitoring committee will soon be holding a meeting to evaluate the member’s level of compliance with the set production amounts. The previous OPEC meeting held back in March, where Saudi Arabia and Russia did not reach an agreement in regards to production, saw the prices of crude oil decline.
