FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY opened the day at 102.06, reached 102.13 high, but reversed the move following the Nikkei slide.



Run for safety



Nikkei closed down 0.64% at 14,973.53, and this was another reason the USD was not ready to resume the rise. The pair came under pressure of recent World Bank forecasts signaling of slowing growth of the global economy. For instance, the US economy growth was revised lower to 2.1% from 2.8% previously. This news revived the risk aversion mood, and sent the pair below 102.00. However, the pair managed to recover, posting 102.13 session high at the moment, and if the rise resumes, the next target to the upside may be at 102.37.
