FXStreet (Guatemala) - Currently, USD/JPY is trading at 101.93, up 0.01% on the day, having posted a daily high at 102.02 and low at 101.74.



JPY is performing well although remains within the tight six‐session range of 101.61 to 102.36. The pair is undermined currently by the weakness of the US dollar, which weakened following yesterday’s FOMC and remains beneath the 102.00-level. The greenback has been undermined by the pullback in US yields reflecting the more dovish than expected assessment of the FOMC meeting, as explained by Lee Hardman, analyst at the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.
