    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/JPY pair recovered from the daily low of 114.21, but remains below 115.00 levels; it’s weakest since Nov 2014.

    Hovers around 114.80

    The spot currently trades around 114.80 levels; down 0.91% on the day. Earlier today, the risk-off trading gathered pace with Nikkei falling sharply, while the Japanese 10-yr bonds hitting the negative territory. The Yen strengthened as well, pushing the pair down to 114.21 levels.

    The minor recovery seen now appears largely chart driven and could be met with fresh offers if the European stock markets extend the risk-off seen on Monday.
