FXStreet (Guatemala) - Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank noted a soft tone around the USD/JPY.
"CPI came in essentially as expected and vaguely softer than the May print."
"Headline CPI printed at 3.6%y/y, ex fresh food was at 3.3%y/y and ex food and energy was at 2.3%y/y. The release is still distorted from the impact of the consumption tax; but has provided evidence of firming prices in Japan. From the BoJ perspective this likely provides some cover from having to turn towards more aggressive policy in the near-term; however developments to date still suggest that further JPY weakness will be an important piece."
