US dollar climbs to fresh daily highs versus yen

FXStreet (Córdoba) – USD/JPY has managed to move slightly higher on Wednesday and printed fresh daily highs at the beginning of the New York session as the dollar picked up pace over the last minutes.

USD/JPY rose above Asian session highs and peaked at 120.62, roughly at the same level it did Monday, as the greenback found some buying interest in quiet trade. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 120.57, 0.11% above its opening price.

USD/JPY is rising for third day in a row, extending its recovery from 2-month lows scored at the weekly opening. However, motion remains limited as investors’ interest decreases into the year end.
