Analysts at Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi explained that the USD/JPY is higher following the release of revised US economic data. Key Quotes: "But topside remains heavy because market participants are still not confident about the Fed and BoJ’s next moves.

The upper bound for USD/JPY around 115.50 ahead of the BoJ and Fed meetings may be supported by Japanese exporters. The ECB decision may boost market expectations for more easing by the BoJ.

BoJ Governor Kuroda will have to clarify how he intends to encourage Japanese companies to make more capital outlays. In our view, the BoJ will not ease further this month."
