FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY opened at 101.67, and slid to 101.43 low by the moment pressured by risk aversive moods.

Hard time rising
The pair is having hard time rising, as there is lack of economic catalysts, and lack of any hints on Yellen’s side that could drive the demand on the American currency. However, nothing is lost for now, as we still have some US data scheduled for release tonight. Housing readings coupled with labor data may give the pair the needed incentive to move this or that way. We must admit that new and existing home sales have gradually shown downward movement, and the released tonight data may confirm the downside risks. If so, the pair may come under pressure again, and go back to 102.00 support level.
