Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/JPY dipped a bit after the JPY regained its momentum. The euro remains positive as traders have had time to review and rethink their disappointment over comments by the ECB and are now moving to support Draghi's moves, which is supporting the euro.

The Bank of Japan will conclude their rate and policy meeting tomorrow, although little is expected. The yen is bringing 78.27 in this morning's session
