USD/JPY held up at 101.60 resistance

By FXstreet.com | July 14, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 101.54, up 0.31% on the day, having posted a daily high at 101.64 and low at 101.32.



JPY is soft since Friday’s close and broke up from the sideways channel, scoring some 20 pips above the 101.40 channel resistance. Camilla Sutton, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained that Japans industrial production data (rising 0.7%m/m and 1.0% y/y) was more encouraging than last week’s slew of disappointing data. “However, leading into the BoJ meeting, concerns are rising that the central bank’s forecasts will be revised lower and the tone will provide a hint of dovishness." For now, the 101.64 is holding the pair up ahead of advances to 101.74 and the 20 SMA.
