USD/JPY down to 107.00 as pressured by yields and Ind production

FXStreet (San Francisco) - US industrial production reported an unexpectedly decline in August and it put the USD under pressure and besides down US Yields, the USD/JPY broke 107.15 to test the 107.00 area.

However the USD/JPY seems to have bounced at this level and now it is trading at 107.15, down 0.18% on the day, having posted a daily high at 107.38 and low at 107.01.

The hourly FXStreet OB/OS Index is showing neutral conditions, alongside the FXStreet Trend Index which is slightly bearish.

US yields are down to 2.589%, 2.5 bp lower on the day after weak industrial production data. "USD/JPY lower as well, having worked through small bids in the 107.10/15 area," Jamie Coleman comments. "Overnight, we traded up as high as 2.65%. More bids are seen at 106.90/107."
