    USD/JPY is currently in recovery on the daily sticks from the lows of 110.97 from this year's sell-off and is bid in the opening hour of Tokyo.

    The upside has reached a high of 114.86 so far and in touching distance of the 115 psychological handle. However, while the foundations for a return of risk apatite remains highly fragile, there remains a bearish bias and a temptation to sell into the recovery.

    Today, there was a strong correlation in oil, and this commodity continues to drive the market. "The underwhelming oil production freeze agreement saw oil prices give up earlier gains, and they currently trading at around USD29/bbl for WTI and USD32.40/bbl for Brent," explained analysts at ANZ earlier today.
