FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY is recovering ground Monday, having climbed to a high of 102.56 at the beginning of the New York session, underpinned by improving risk appetite.



Easing geopolitical concerns have made the yen surrender some of its Friday's gains. However, moves have remained subdued as investors gear up for big events this week. The Fed will publish its latest meeting minutes Wednesday, while Yellen will speak at the Jackson Hole symposium Friday.



At time of writing, the USD/JPY is trading at 102.51, up 0.17% on the day, having bottomed out at 102.13 Friday.
