FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY is approaching daily highs and trades at the strongest level since the beginning of the American session at 102.45, up 0.19% for the day.



After the release of the US retail sales numbers in the US the pair dropped and bottomed at 102.22 but then rebounded, rising back to the price it had before the report.



During the European session the USD/JPY peaked at 102.51, hitting the strongest level in a week. The US dollar continues to recover against the Yen after falling last week to 101.50.
