    The bid tone around JPY strengthened on drop in oil and Chinese equity markets, pushing the USD/JPY pair back to 112.10 levels in early Europe.

    Risk-off making a comeback in Europe

    Both oil benchmarks are down at least 0.50%. Meanwhile, the Chinese equity markets are heading into the close with 6% loss. Consequently, the investors are worried the risk-off trading is making a comeback in Europe.

    Hence, the USD/JPY pair fell back to 112.10 levels. The spot clocked a high of 112.62 levels in Asia before turning lower.
