By FXstreet.com | June 18, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 101.88, down -0.04% on the day, having posted a daily high at 101.96 and low at 101.86.



The Nikkei opened up 0.16% while the USD/JPY has been pressured overnight to the downside and is starting to consolidate on 101.90 awaiting the next move from either direction. Fundamentally, the FOMC was overall a bearish mark in the sand for the greenback and it may take something particular to reverse the damage done in the US session. Meanwhile, the hourly FXStreet OB/OS Index is showing oversold conditions, alongside the FXStreet Trend Index which is slightly bearish.
