FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY touched 103.94 session high, and reversed the move sliding just below 103.80 by the moment.



Will Jennet destroy the hope?



The pair bumped into strong resistance at 104.00, and investors were in no hurry to test it again, as the key event of the week is on the agenda. The recent FOMC minutes somehow confused the market with its aggressive stance, and gave the reason to buy the buck. However, Jennet Yellen’s speech at Jackson Hole symposium may destroy all the previous arguments with just a dovish view on the US labor market. In this case the pair may come under pressure, and slid down to 103.64 support initially.
