USD/JPY typically stabilizes ahead of the end of 1H. But JPY selling flows have been very strong, with overseas securities investing by Japanese investors at JPY210.0 billion and medium- to long-term debt buying at JPY1.49 trillion. JPY selling flows by Japanese investors appears to be supporting the lower bound for USD/JPY.”

“Key points to watch will be US retail data as well as the Cabinet reshuffle in Japan. Yet these are unlikely to have a big impact on USD/JPY.”
