    FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The Japanese yen is extending its solid tone against the greenback, relegating USD/JPY to session lows in the 119.70/60 band so far.

    USD/JPY attention to US data

    Spot is falling for the second session in a row, retreating from Monday’s tops in the 120.20 area following the renewed downside in the dollar. Earlier during the Asian trading hours, the rhetoric from the BoJ has been a repetition of the previous releases, prompting JPY to practically ignore today’s minutes.

    With US markets returning to normal activity after Monday’s holiday, the NFIB Business Optimism index is due ahead of the speech by Fed’s Bullard.

    USD/JPY relevant levels

    At the moment the pair is losing 0.26% at 119.71 with the next support at 119.61 (Fibo 61.8% of 125.58-116.16) followed by 118.68 (low Oct.2) and finally 116.16 (low post PBoC move Aug.24). On the other hand, a breakout of 120.60 (Fibo 50% of 125.58-116.16) would expose 120.86 (55-day sma) and then 121.42 (200-day sma).
