usd to jpy outlook

Investors definitely sold the bounce in the US dollar to yen (USD/JPY) exchange rate, as the pair spiked to 106.80 last week and today eased back to below 106.50 on a relatively quiet day of trade.

The pair will likely see some volatility today as US CPI often has quite an impact on Dollar/Yen as it has both FX and risk connotations.

Forex strategists at Scotiabank believe that short positioning in the Japanese Yen means there is still room for more upside in the JPY in the near term.
