FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY has popped up creating a high of 102.42 post the opening of the Nikkie after a lacklustre start in Asia.

USD/JPY’s scored a low of 101.70 in earlier sessions and the main event in the FX space was the poor US data, but regardless there really wasn’t a great deal going on but a spike on the Yen of 20 pips on a couple of occasions. Nevertheless, the pair recovered some ground and has been better bid since with a spike back onto the 102 handle again. From the calendar, poorer data that came today in the form of US retail sales contracted 0.4% inter-month during January, while excluding the Auto sector sales came in flat. Yellen’s testimony before the Senate Banking Committee has been rescheduled due to the impending snow-storm. Coming up we will have Chinas Consumer Price Index but, as Sean Callow, strategists at Westpac Banking Corporation ABN explained, “shouldn’t have much impact. Inflation isn’t a very pressing concern in China right now, with growth having decelerated and the stronger yuan helping cap inflation”.
