Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/JPY added 0.07 pips this morning to trade at 97.09. The euro has held pretty steady against a strong USD, but the JPY has begun to show weakness, after several weeks of poor eco data. As risk aversion leaves the marketplace and traders continue to move into higher risk assets, the JPY is left hanging. The USD was finally able to get a firmer footing against the yen and breakout of its trading range.

The euro remains strong on hopes that we will see some action from the ECB, with news flow to a minimum, Spain, Greece and Italy have been quiet.
