FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY bounced back from 108.50 area reached on aggressive comments from Japanese PM. Currently it is trading at 108.50.

Another housing report

The pair got pressured by recent Abe’s comments on impact of weak yen for the regional economies. Trading below 109.00 area may be a sign the market is tired of USD popularity and overwhelmed with USD longs.

The initial target to the downside for the pair may be found at 108.42 support.
