Current trend 

USD/JPY traded stably on Wednesday as positive statistics for US inflation had exhausted their effect.  Moreover, the dollar was affected by the data on durable goods orders. This index decreased by 1.4% in February in the contrary to experts' forecasts of a 0.4% increase.

The yen is expected to appreciate and reach a level of 118.35 in the run-up to the publication of important Japanese economic statistics on Friday. If statistics for Japanese consumer price index are upbeat, the Japanese currency will have good outlook for further appreciation.
