FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY is staying close to the opening level of 101.45 in a quiet and uneventful Asian session

No hope for breakthrough

USD/JPY finished three days in a row in the green zone, but the the pivotal resistance zone of 101.80-102.00 is still out of reach. Weaker than expected US CPI numbers destroyed nearly all intraday bullish achievement. The upside dynamics cannot gain momentum, thus without a good fundamental trigger the pair may soon return to the lower side of its current range. Alas, macroecomonic calendar is next to empty today. Barring a new geopolitical shock, USD/JPY is going to spend another dull day.
