Having bottomed out near two-week lows, the USD/JPY pair continues its struggle to regain 117 handle and hovers in the upper band of 116 handle. USD/JPY finds strong resistance at 117 handle The major moved away from two-week lows near the mid-point of 116 handle and continues to oscillate back and forth in a 20-pips tight range, as markets refrain from creating fresh positions ahead of the crucial US employment report. At the time of writing, the major trades 0.10% higher at 116.88 levels. Further, the recovery in the major lacks follow-through as the yen remains underpinned on the back of falling oil prices and cautious tone prevalent on the European equities. Both crude benchmarks drop nearly -1% as broad USD recovery picks-up pace. Meanwhile, all eyes remain on the US NFP report for fresh momentum on the pair.
