The Japanese yen started the first after– holiday trading session by depreciating to 145.21 versus the Euro, yet the volume was rather mild during the day. The end of the week proceeded with a more sufficient move and the cross fell back to the weekly S3 at 144.75 during the last trading hours. Mainly, the trades seemed to be stuck between the weekly S3 and S2, fluctuating in a 59 pip range. A slide below will open an immediate support at 144.47, the 55– day SMA.
