The pair USD/JPY demonstrated growth during trading on Tuesday in view of release of weak data from the USA: the sales of new houses dropped by 3.4% and did not meet the expectations of the investors. The fall of the indicator shows the reduction of stimulation of corresponding industry, service, and labor market sectors which has a negative impact on the rate of the national currency. Moreover USD ignored "hawkish" statements by the head of the Fed Janet Yellen in which she called for the strategy of gradual increase of interest rates.
Today traders will pay attention to the data on incomplete housing sales transactions in the USA and statements by the Fed's members James Bullard and Lael Brainard.
