    USD/JPY has steadied around 112.50 on Wednesday after hitting fresh weekly lows during the European session as financial markets exhibit an overall cautious tone, leaning to risk-on.

    USD/JPY bottomed out at 112.22 but managed to trim intraday losses and climbed to the 112.55 area in recent dealings. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 112.50, a few pips below its opening price.

    Despite better risk sentiment, USD/JPY remains on the defensive, falling for a third day in a row while investors await the BoJ and the Fed decision next week.
