    USD/JPY focus on US docket

    The attention of the pair will shift towards the US docket today, as the inactivity in the Japanese markets will relegate volatility to minimum levels during the first half the session. Factory Orders will then take centre stage, with prior surveys expecting orders to have contracted 0.9% MoM during September, bettering the previous 1.7% contraction.

    On the Japanese side, it will be a flat week data wise, with Governor Kuroda’s speech being the main highlight towards the end of the week.
