After the holidays, the markets are busy, with a high degree of volatility came a correction in stocks, as well as in many currencies. Despite Monday’s strengthening of the much-watched currency pair USDJPY, some investors could bet on further breaking the highs. The resistance held and the currency pair rallied with the dollar, which broke through the 105.00 mark on its index on Tuesday. The dollar did not warm up to this value for a long time and weakened practically throughout Tuesday with moderate returns. Shares, both American and European, also took a big hit.
