USD/JPY sentiment



"Sellers are still keen to step up between 102.70-80 with stops through 103.20 topside. Longs may take heart from the higher lows after the flush to 102.33," comments Matt Bacon-Hall from FXBeat. "The 103.08 level I highlighted last week was significant, and so far nothing has changed."
