Forex: USD/JPY rises further to 94.70

FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY recovered on Tuesday and trimmed Monday's losses. At the beginning of Wednesday's Asian session rose further and reached at 94.70 a two day high. At the moment trades at 94.55/57, unchanged from today's opening price and 10 pips above the price it had at the beginning of the week.

The Yen is holding a bearish bias across the board so far on Wednesday, extending the decline while the US Dollar remains mostly unchanged.
