Forex pairs in this Article » AUD/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY (Barcelona) - Amid a mid-low volatile Asian session, the Japanese Yen ends being the best performer for a third consecutive day. Gains began limited, yet once USDJPY broke through 88.35, sharper gains were achieved. Traders are growing increasingly worried that Japan may be running out of catalysts to weaken the Yen in the short run, after yesterday's BoJ disappointment. On the flip side, the Australian Dollar was the main laggard, unable to sustain gains from Tuesday after weaker-than-expected CPI read-outs.
