USD/JPY above 102 handle targets 102.50

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 29, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 102.08, down -0.04% on the day, having posted a daily high at 102.14 and low at 102.07.



Japan Industrial Production was a huge miss with the number coming in at -3.3% vs -1.2% expected, and yet USD/JPY doesn’t move. The USD/JPY is however holding the 102 handle and if the correlation between the Nikkei (down 0.1%) is anything to go by, then the pair has room to the topside before it falls back into line of the on going correlation with the Nikkei trend up. 102.50/80 zone would be next obvious target.
