    FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at Westpac had a number of high conviction trade plans for crosses and suggested to Buy USD/JPY into 116.05, stop 114.85.

    Key Quotes:

    "The improved equity mood has helped place considerable distance between USD/JPY and last week's panicky lows around 116. BoJ Gov Kuroda has stuck to his usual script but local media reports suggest further easing will at least be discussed Thu-Fri"

    "We don't expect action as soon as Fri but the risks are growing and won't disappear on a steady hand with inflation so far from target. Moreover, CFTC data shows leveraged funds are (slightly) long JPY, so fresh USD/JPY longs will be tempting, albeit dampened by a lack of confidence in Fed hikes. We retain a bias to buy dips on USD/JPY."
