USD/JPY a buy on dips to 95.00 barrier

According to Sean Callow, a Global FX Strategist at Westpac, “The base of the USD/JPY is building due to Fed tapering and the LDP victory at Sunday's Tokyo metropolitan assembly election. The Upper House election only 4 weeks away and with it greater chance that the 3rd arrow will gain momentum – we like buying dips in USD/JPY toward 95.00.”
