FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Japanese yen keeps the area of 2013 highs around 97.00/15 on Friday, boosted by the aggressive programme of stimulus by the BoJ directed to spark inflation expectations in the domestic economy.

The expert also commented that technical studies – Elliott wave count – would suggest a pullback to 95.50/94.90 prior to resuming the upside.
