News Headline Summary

USD/JPY continues to hover near lows and in close proximity to intraday option expiry level seen at 82.00

Analysis details (03:09)

- JPY strength evident across the board this morning after the Bank of Japan minutes from the October 30th meeting showed that the BoJ will maintain easing until 1% CPI has been reached. Minutes said members proposed to strengthen commitment to easing policy, there should be no upper limit to its lending facility and CPI will move toward 1% in 2014.
- The fact that the BoJ did not discuss targeting higher inflation, as urged by Japan's main opposition leader, provided markets with an opportunity to book profits on recent JPY weakness.
