Meanwhile, the shorter maturity bonds are surging and the US Treasury yield’s curve steepened which resulted in the rise of the dollar. The US dollar index rose to 93.84, up by 0.04 per cent at 01:30 AM GMT(9:30 PM ET).

Year on year, the Japanese Producer Price Index of September rose 0.9 per cent. However, the expected increase was 1 per cent. But given the circumstances, the rise was good.

On the other side, the USD/KRW pair plunged to 1,164.94 by 0.26% as the growth slowed. During the third quarter, the country’s GDP grew by 0.3per cent as per the data released by the Bank of Korea.
