The USDJPY is set to finish the week almost flat, dropping in the last week from around 147.00 to 138.46, after the release of a soft inflation report in the United States (US), sparking speculations that the Federal Reserve (Fed) might stop from rising rates. However, in the present week, the USDJPY is staging a recovery. At the time of writing, the USDJPY is trading at 140.37.
