    "The June Nikkei manufacturing PMI also climbed to 50.1 (49.9 prev). Despite this, USD-JPY however may however remain responsive to risk/broad dollar cues in the near term."

    Pair's Outlook
    Upon reaching the 122 psychological level, the USD/JPY currency pair was pushed back; however, the Buck still failed to close higher. Ultimately, the Greenback settled at 122.52, giving hopes of a rebound today. Technical studies retain mixed signs, but unless the US fundamental data disappoints, we should see the US Dollar outperform the Yen. Nonetheless, a strong resistance, namely the weekly PP and the 123 major level, is likely to limit the gains.

    Traders' Sentiment
    Both net positions and net orders improved. Currently 74% of traders hold long positions (previously 72%), while 68% of commands are now to acquire the US currency.
