FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 103.93, up 0.08% on the day, having posted a daily high at 104.21 and low at 103.50.

USD/JPY’s advance onto the 104 handle has been short lived although the probability of a revisit remains on a well performing greenback. We are out of data for the week now that Yellen has passed with a dovish speech that came without surprises. Meanwhile, Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabanknoted that next week’s focus on Japan will be inflation data; where headline is expected to settle to 3.4%y/y, ex fresh food is expected to be stable at 3.3%y/y and ex food and energy is expected to be 2.3%y/y. We expect USDJPY to close the year materially higher than current levels and hold a Q314 target of 104 and a year‐end target of 109."
