USD/JPY lacks momentum

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 28, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY pushed higher at the beginning of the European session and climbed to fresh daily highs, although moves remained constrained to familiar ranges.



Yen crosses' timid moves are providing ‘volatility’ to the summer lethargy as most pairs continue to tread water in relatively tight ranges. However, the USD/JPY has only risen 15 pips from lows to hit a high of 101.87 in recent dealings before quickly losing momentum.
