USD/JPY resting up below pivot on a down week

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 101.34, up 0.17% on the day, having posted a daily high at 101.46 and low at 101.09.



USD/JPY sideways channel formed here is stalling the downward momentum in a risk off market while the dollar is also attracting bids and approaching key levels across the board which may offer some support to the USD/JPY. The Market Strategy Team at UOB Group explained that "While the anticipated short-term weakness moved lower than expected, we continue to believe that USD is still trading in a 101.00/102.00 range. Only a clear break below 101.00 would indicate a more sustained mid-term down-move."
