Well supported around the 111.20 zone, the cross looked higher around European time and kept climbing ever since, with the 112.00 mark reached a few moments ago.

Abe clearly stated there was a big difference for the economy depending on the exchange rate and Ishiba was more concrete, calling for USDJPY exchange rate of 85.00/90.00. Also, Shinzo Abe said that the government will revise BoJ Law if the central bank doesn't change its inflation target to 2% at the January 21-22 meeting.

UBS analysts are neutral: "The cross is under correction and today's buying will find resistance at 112.5", wrote analyst Gareth Berry, pointing to support at 110. 63.
