USD/JPY sees the downside contained above 109.00
USD/JPY’s pullback on Thursday was amidst declining open interest in the Japanese safe haven, which signals diminishing odds for a deeper retracement. That said, the spot is expected to resume the upside and retake the 110.00 neighbourhood and above in the near-term. On the downside, the 55-day SMA in the 109.10 region is seen offering a tough support.
