    FXStreet (Córdoba) - US dollar weakened during the American session and pushed USD/JPY to the downside, breaking below 121.00. The pair bottomed so far at 120.72, the lowest level since December 15.

    Currently it remains near the lows, still under pressure, with the US dollar hitting fresh lows versus the euro and the Swiss franc. The yen extended gains versus greenback despite rising US government bond yields.

    Stocks in Wall Street are in positive territory but moved off session highs. The Dow Jones is up 0.22% and the Nasdaq gains 0.26%. Gold remains unchanged while crude oil is now back in positive territory with the WTI barrel above $36.
