EUR/JPY bounces off the mid-128.00s
After a brief drop to new 4-month lows near 128.50 on Tuesday, EUR/JPY managed to regain buying interest on the back of the moderate recovery in US yields and the eventual selling bias in the Japanese yen.
Indeed, US 10-year yields regain the smile and the 1.28% region after bottoming out in levels last seen back in February around 1.13% on Tuesday.
The dollar, in the meantime, shows some volatility and fuels the rebound in the single currency ahead of the key ECB event on Thursday.
On the latter, consensus among traders expects the central bank to keep or even enhance the current mega-accommodative stance of the monetary conditions in the euro area.
