USD/JPY sentiment



"The retreat from the 61.8% retracement of the 102.25/101.07 decline is accelerating after weak US industrial production data," comments Jamie Coleman from FXBeat. "Hopes for a solid Q2 rebound in GDP are beginning to fade."



Next support is at 101.60 before 101.50 and 101.40.
