04:10 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY is testing 121.00
FX Action: USD-JPY is testing 121.00 in London trader after earlier meeting Japanese exporter offers and other selling after opening in Tokyo, when spot was near yesterday's two-month high at 121.47. Slightly firmer than expected Japanese manufacturing PMI data, and slightly softer than expected China PMI, had little impact today. An article in the Nikkei newspaper today also suggests that the BoJ will revise its outlook up during its policy meeting, which concludes tomorrow. The dip in USD-JPY has seen the early-March high at 122.03 dip back under the horizon. That level is the highest point the pair has seen during the broadly side-ways trend that's been persisting since early December. Analysts have been anticipating an eventual breakout to the topside as the U.S. economy recovers traction following its Q1- early-Q2 soft patch, while the ultra loose monetary policies of Abecomics are likely to be remaining in force in Japan when the Fed eventually reaches tightening lift-off. Resistance is at 121.47-50, support at 121.00 and 120.50.
