FXstreet.com (Chicago) - USD/JPY falls on bearish pressure to 98.56 session lows at Tokyo’s opening ahead of Kuroda’s speech.

According to FXstreet.com analyst, Valeria Bednarik, “the USD/JPY continued pulling back from the highs established around 98.83, albeit maintaining also a tight trading range and presenting a technical neutral stance: the hourly chart shows indicators flat around their midlines, although price steady above moving averages, with 100 one offering some short term support around 98.40. A break below this last should signal more weakness in the pair for the upcoming hours, eyeing then 97.80, past Friday low.” The Nikkei 225 opened 0.60% stronger.
