    USD/JPY in 2-day lows

    The pair is retreating for the second consecutive session so far following the rejection at Friday’s highs near 121.70. It is worth noting that spot has advanced more than 2% in response to the interest rate cut announced by the BoJ at its meeting last week.

    Monday’s poor results from the US docket have also collaborated with the ongoing downside, although some decent support seems to have emerged in the 120.40/30 band.
