"The yen is likely to remain weak as flows from the 'three pension funds' will keep up the pressure once buying from GPIF begins petering out."

Pair's Outlook
On Tuesday, the US Dollar appreciated against the Japanese Yen, although not as much as anticipated. USD/JPY added only five pips and was nowhere near any resistance during the trading day. However, a decline is likely to take place today, due to an expectation of a reduction in the US Durable Goods Orders, while the technical studies retain their mixed signals. Closest support lies among a cluster of important levels around 119.00, which is highly unlikely to be breached.

Traders' Sentiment
Liquidity consumers' confidence improved, as 63% of traders are now long the Dollar (previously 59%). Meanwhile, the percentage of buy orders remains unchanged at 62%.
