At the time of writing, the USD/JPY is operating at 99.49, up +0.20% during Asian trading. According to the BNZ Research Team, “The return of the USD/JPY onto a 99 handle on Friday (low of 93.85 in mid-June) may encourage the spec community to launch another assault on 100 this week, although we suspect we’ll need US data to play ball as well.”
