USD/JPY looks to US yields

As of writing the pair is down 0.04% at 112.58 facing the next down barrier at 112.41 (low Nov.21) seconded by 111.88 (low Nov.20) and then 111.75 (200-day sma). On the flip side, a break above 113.12 (10-day sma) would aim for 113.33 (high Nov.16) and finally 113.49 (21-day sma).
