USD/JPY recovering ground

The Japanese yen continues to weaken today following a more stable tone from the EM. Adding to the JPY downside, investors continue to digest the recent trade data, which showed a ¥1.3 trillion deficit. “We maintain our view of a higher USDJPY, and that the BOJ would likely ease further in 2Q2014, especially if April's Tankan survey shows a moderation in business sentiment”, argued strategists at the Swiss bank UBS.

USD/JPY levels to watch

At the moment spot is up 0.29% at 102.93 facing the next resistance at 103.97 (low Jan.22) ahead of 104.15 (200-h MA) and then 104.55 (21-d MA). On the flip side, a break below 102.00 (low Jan.22) would aim for 101.76 (38.2% of 95.81-105.45) and finally 101.62 (low Dec.5).
