Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/JPY is trading at 97.22 coming off of record lows of just last week around 94.00. The euro has managed to gain momentum as investors have become more confident of the ECB stand and its move forward. Draghi did not give into pressures last week at the ECB meeting but is moving forward with undisclosed bank plans to secure the EU and to bring down borrowing rates for Spain and Italy.

The Japanese yen remains strong but with less risk aversion in the markets and the Bank of Japan meeting this week, the JPY has dipped against the euro.
