FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY bounced from lows as the knee-jerk reaction after the Federal Reserve decided to cut its QE program by an extra $10 billion, leaving asset purchases at $65 billion per month.

The USD/JPY briefly spiked toward the 102.35 zone as the greenback strengthened on the decision, although the advance was quite shallow as market was already anticipating such a move. The FOMC decision was unanimous, for the first time since June 2011. However, the greenback lacked follow through and pulled back to currently trade around 120.00, recording a 0.9% loss on the day.
