There is an option expiry of 118.50, which will see a strong bid soon reappear considering sales sharply visible. The Nikkei 225 is now down nearly 0.50% ahead of the weekend.

    Rebound at the price of USD / JPY was seen approaching the area at around 119.19. The indicator shows a bullish indication on the 1 hour chart. As a trading strategy, consider the resistance area at the range 119.19 to seek confirmation of the bearish signals as a sell signal with the potential targets in the range of 118.40. Beware if there is penetration to over 119.19 resistance because it can turn into a bullish intraday and likely will again bring the price moves up to 119.68 range.

    USD / JPY traded flat at 118.51, after the previous print daily high and daily low at 118.64 at 118.24. Yen traded cautious against the greenback as traders refrained from making new positions ahead of the BoJ statement and US FOMC minutes to be released tomorrow. However, the pair may remain supported on increasing safe-haven bet amid rising tensions over the Greek situation after the second round of talks between eurozone finance ministers collapsed.

    USD / JPY still weak in the middle of the Asian session, slightly recovered from session lows, as the Japanese export data that is optimistic and weakening the greenback continued to weigh. Yen remain steadfast against the US dollar due to the strong Japanese export data show a sharp rise in January, ignoring the trade balance data gloomy overall

    The yen was slightly weaker in Asian session Friday morning though with no major economic data released, except for the manufacturing PMI (flash). Moreover, the Asian markets, particularly China, are still closed in order to Lunar New Year holiday. The only driver of Yen today is the statement of the Governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ), Haruhiko Kuroda.

    The US dollar moved slightly to 118.92 yen positions after descending from a high level of 119.35, reached on Monday following a slide in US bond yields. US government bond yields fell on Monday as markets fear a mistake to take positions ahead of testimonials Yellen.

    USD / JPY may consolidate with downside bias for the time being, the negative side is expected to remain closed at 118.20. Although traders sell yen widely ahead of Fed Chairman Janet Yellen's testimony in front of Congress and approval of the extension of Greek debt encourage risk sentiment, broad-based selling in the dollar quickly occurs when testimony released Yellen did not give a clear indication of when the rate hikes that have been waiting for will happen, the next release of US consumer confidence bleak add further pressure to the pair
