Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/JPY is trading towards the end of the Asian session at 96.00 well above last week's lows. The euro was able to gain a bit of momentum, as negative eco data in Japan hit the streets today. Unemployment dipped which was a positive but PMI and Household Spending disappointed.

The euro will remain strong as traders are hoping that the ECB will be able to follow through with their promises of last week and make some significant announcements on Thursday this week after their scheduled meeting.
