USD/JPY is closer to 103.00 every coming minute

By FXstreet.com | July 31, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY is on the way up from Asian low at 102.73 to 102.95 high by the moment.



On the way to 103.00



Nikkei closed Friday session losing 0.63% at 15523.11, however, it didn’t help the yen to recover recent losses, as the market awaits the key US release of the week. Most probably we won’t see much action during the European session. The volatility may grow closer to the American open, as Non-Farm Payroll numbers are on the agenda. The lack of traditional leading indicators (ISM employment components) only complicates the prediction task, rising the chances of high volatility upon the release.
