    USD/JPY is catching the attention of the FX space, with the downside opening up and testing through the 113 handle marking a fresh low of the month at 112.87 so far and lowest level since the 29th Feb recovery at 112.23.

    The theme of markets have surrounded the rally in commodity prices, but investors apatite remains fragile, but both scenarios are supporting the Yen and the recent sideways channel's support has been put under pressure and given way to the bears through the 200 sma on the hourly chart.

    The GDP helped boost a revival in the Yen as well, just before the Tokyo shift got going today with annualized -1.1% vs -1.55 expected for Q4. As we move along, the bourses are also in the red and supporting the bid on the Yen.
