    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/JPY edged a tad higher, but remained well within its daily range, after the European Central Bank decided to keep rates unchanged at its January meeting.

    As widely expected, the ECB kept the interest rate on the main refinancing operations at 0.05%. The interest rates on the marginal lending facility and the deposit facility were also unchanged at 0.30% and -0.30% respectively. President Draghi will address the press at 13.30 GMT.

    EUR/JPY rose around 20 pips following the announcement but was capped by the 127.55 area. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 127.45, just a few pips above its opening price.
