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.

14:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields flip-flopped
Treasury Action: yields flip-flopped after the FOMC minutes, first zigging lower to dip below 2.24% on the 10-year before zagging back over 2.27% for a little volatility after the minutes relative to the quagmire in advance. The Fed is still leaning toward a temporary slowdown, but there were a lot of caveats that remain to be dispelled. The majority did reject a June hike, however, which was a known risk in advance. Stocks remain baffled, while the dollar has rebounded.

14:04 EDTMost Fed members expect moderate economic expansion after Q1
The Federal Reserve stated in the latest minutes, "Most participants expected that, following the slowdown in the first quarter, real economic activity would resume expansion at a moderate pace, and that labor market conditions would improve further. Inflation continued to run below the Committee's longer-run objective, partly reflecting earlier declines in energy prices and decreasing prices of non-energy imports."
