USD/JPY retraces daily advance

By FXstreet.com | August 14, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY has given up intraday gains and fallen to fresh daily lows as the dollar weakened across the board amid falling US yields.



The USD/JPY failed to break above 102.65 and came under pressure, sliding to a low of 102.31 in recent dealings as US Treasurys catch the bid tone seen in bunds, putting yields and the greenback under pressure.
