Just before the end of yesterday's trading, at 23:50 GMT, Japan published its trade balance figures, which came out better than expected. Japanese exports grew in February at their fastest pace in 30 years. After the report was published, the JPY climbed against the USD. The report is showing an increase in exports both to the U.S. and Asia. This is a healthy signal about the global economy, pointing to the fact that consumers are slowly picking up demand around the globe.
