FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 101.38, up 0.21% on the day, having posted a daily high at 101.46 and low at 101.09.



USD/JPY remains in a neutral position here and isn’t going anywhere currently. Marc Chandler, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman explained, “The yen strengthened, but we continue to read reports that misconstrue the safe haven appeal. The gains in the yen did not seem to be a function of investors fleeing political uncertainty by shifting savings into Japan. Rather, we think that what happens is the risk assets are undermined, and the yen's use as a funding currency is unwound (short-covering)."
