USD/JPY is getting closer to 108.00

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY is retreating from overnight highs around 109.22; the pair is trading at 108.46 in early Europe.

If the rally is exhausted

As soon as the pair reached multi-year highs around 110, the way up became too complicated. The pair actually shows the second failure in a row to settle above the mentioned resistance. Whether the upward momentum is exhausted may depend on the US data releases, and the stance of the FOMC members. In light of this, the scheduled for release this week FOMC minutes are of key importance, and may either support, or kill the pair rally. For now the next target to the downside may be found at 108.33 support.
