The Team pointed out: “The cross was sold as a result of the multi-year highs seen last week which presented market participants with a profit-taking opportunity. However, the turning point for USD/JPY was seen alongside the resurgence in European equities amid comments from Goldman Sachs that Goldman says first Fed tapering move is more likely in March with the taper next week is unlikely because the case for tapering mixed on basis of data since Oct.”

According to them there is a light economic calendar ahead for Japan, so “any taper talk or commentary heading into Wednesday’s taper decision could act as a guide for price action.”
