USD/JPY pressing down through pivot

By FXstreet.com | Updated August 05, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 102.63 having posted a daily high at 102.94 and low at 102.46.



USD/JPY remains within the range and struggles still towards the 103 handle. Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank noted how news flows were generally light; with the release of the Markit services PMI (at 50.4) ignored. “Friday’s BoJ is likely a non‐event for USD/JPY." However analysts at TD Securities explained that the BoJ will have to address weaker than expected growth into midyear and inflation moving in the right direction but still at a slow pace.
