Yen bashing continues

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/JPY pair is trading above the previous cycle high of 116.12 ahead of the key data releases in the Europe and US.

The pair traded 0.48% higher at 116.33 at the time of writing, compared to the previous day’s close of 115.75. The Yen slid further as lack of reversal signals, despite facing rejection at 116.00 levels since the start of the week opened doors for further losses. Moreover, the losses witnessed today are despite the weakness in the US ten-year treasury yields, which declined to 2.34%.
