[B]USD/JPY[/B] - ........ Despite intra-day gap-down open to 120.32 in New Zealand due to the release of weak Chinese data over the weekend, failure to penetrate Friday's low at 120.28 triggered short-covering and price rebounded to 120.58 ahead of Tokyo open.
However, dlr met renewed selling interest there as the Nikkei-225 index tumbled in early trade (currently down by close to 300 points) and continues to remain under pressure.
