Even though the dollar managed to print a higher high versus the yen on Friday, it lacked momentum to extend gains beyond the 93.00 mark and pulled back slightly ahead of the NY opening.

USD/JPY extended gains into a fourth consecutive day, and continues to recover after the sharp sell-off seen on Monday. USD/JPY rose over 60 pips during the last sessions and recently hit a fresh 4-day high of 93.02 before retreating.

At time of writing, USD/JPY is trading around 92.65/70, where it is still 0.2% above its opening price.
