USD/JPY may think of going back up

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY stuck around 101.50 area, and is not able to break below, but not ready to go higher.



Last chance is lost
The pair has lost the last chance for this week to climb above 102.00 on the yesterday’s release of FOMC minutes. The moderate and rather mixed stance of the Committee members disappointed the USD bulls, and sent the pair tumbling to 101.50 area. Most market participants awaited more optimistic views on inflation and labor data, but haven’t got it from the release. Thus, the pair may stay below 102.00 for the time being waiting for new stronger catalysts.
