USD/JPY - 111.17.. Dlr swung broadly sideways in choppy Asian trading following yesterday's weakness to a fresh 2-month trough of 110.84 in New York morning due to yen buying on risk aversion following media reports that North Korea may be preparing for another missile launch (see previous update for details), however, price briefly jumped to 111.31 at the close on short covering.
Looks like we have made a temp. low as the greenback is currently maintaining a firm undertone against its major peers, suggesting range trading is in store, so selling dlr on further intra-day recovery is still favoured.
Initial offers are tipped at 111.30 with stops above 111.45, however, more selling interest is reported at 111.60/70.
On the downside, bids are noted at 110.95-85 with stops below 110.80.
