FXStreet (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY spiked and scored a fresh daily high immediately after the release of US consumer inflation data, but came under pressure soon after.



US CPI rose by 0.3% in June and 2.1% YoY, meeting analysts’ estimates. However, core indexes rose by 0.1% MoM and 1.9% YoY missing the 0.2% and 2.0% expected.



The USD/JPY first moved up and peaked at 101.59 but lacked momentum and quickly turned lower. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 101.45, still 0.07% above its opening price but back below its-pre data level.
