Analysis and Recommendation:

The USD/JPY is trading at 77.46 as the JPY continues to gather momentum. Today data showed that   Housing starts in Japan fell less-than-expected in the last quarter, official data showed on Friday.

In a report, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said that Japanese Housing Starts fell to a seasonally adjusted -5.5%, from -9.6% in the preceding quarter.

Retain sales also came in well above forecast and the unemployment rate declined all positives for the yen. Core CPI and Industrial production were disappointing.

But in this risk aversion safe haven mode of the markets the JPY continued to trade strong.
