FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY has recovered from the Asian low of 101.67 and settled around minor resistance of 101.80.



Time to pay a visit to a lower side of the range

Form the fundamental point of view, risk sentiments and FED rates expectations are what occupy investors’ minds nowadays. Slightly negative Japanese stock markets development this morning added pressure to USD/JPY, while positive results of USD bill auctions later today might serve as a reason for USD buying.
