Forex: USD/JPY bouncing off 101.50

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Japanese yen is trimming some of last week’s losses on Monday, climbing back to the 101.70/75 region after finding support around the key 101.50 level.

According to Sean Callow, Strategist at Westpac, “Only the very brave would stand in the way, with momentum risking 102.50/103. Yet the US economy is probably still in its slow patch while MoF data shows only tentative JP demand for foreign bonds. Substantial risk of pullback n/t”.

At the moment the cross is losing 0.13% at 101.75 facing the next support at 100.79 (high May 9) and then 100.54 (low May 10).
On the upside, a break above 102.16 (high Ot.21 2008) would bring 102.42 (high Oct.20 2008) and finally the psychological level at 103.00.
