USD/JPY steadies above 116.00

FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/JPY has had a volatile day so far, having hit a fresh 7-year peak on the back of disappointing Japanese GDP, before being firmly rejected from above 117.00.

USD/JPY reached a high of 117.04 during the Asian session as data showed Japan slid back into recession, but the pair failed to sustain at highs and fell all the way to below 116.00 before steadying in a range just above this latter. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 116.26, down 0.14% on Monday, with the latest series of US data having virtually no impact on the dollar.
