Key quotes

“Firmer back-end UST yields provide some support for the USD/JPY, but the pair found little traction north of 108.00 early this morning.” 

“For now, any extension towards the 200-day MA (108.40) should be rejected in favour of staying within the established 106.00 to 108.00 range.”

“In the interim, the 55-day MA (107.43) should support on the downside.”
