Analysts at Scotiabank noted the bullish conditions surrounding USD/JPY.
"USD/JPY has advanced sharply following the USD’s break above 3-year trend resistance around 111.50."
"The JPY is under-performing broadly on the session today as risk sentiment improves."
"Risk-reversal pricing reflects a bid for USD calls (3m tenors) which suggests the market is a little more confident about the USD/JPY move up extending."
"We think technical risks point to USDJPY rising towards 114/115 in the medium term."
