USD/JPY retreated at the start to the week as focus turned to China's crackdown on the education sector as well as tense atmosphere at the latest Sino-U.S. summit.

  • Olympic organisers reported 16 further Covid-19 cases on Monday, taking the total caseload related to the Games to 148. Daily cases in Tokyo reached 1,429, which represented a twofold increase from a week before.
