Today's trading sentiment surrounding the USDJPY pair remains neutral, as the pair continues to hold its 10-day trading range between 113.43 and 112.25.
Traders are likely to see the USDJPY pair moving in increasingly tight range-bound trading conditions until a clear market moving catalyst emerges.
