    Forex - USD/JPY edges higher as Fed signals move towards easing

    Forex Pros – The U.S. dollar edged higher against the yen on Wednesday, after minutes of the most recent meeting of Federal Reserve policy makers indicated that many believe fresh economic stimulus measures could become necessary.

    USD/JPY hit 82.00 during European morning trade, a daily high; the pair subsequently consolidated at 81.89, gaining 0.21%.

    The pair was likely to find support at 81.37, the low of October 11 and a 15-year low and resistance at 83.02, the high of October 7.

    On Tuesday, the minutes revealed of the September 21 meeting of Federal Open Market Committee revealed that while officials thought it unlikely the U.S. economy would fall into recession again, several were concerned that growth would not be strong enough to reduce unemployment for some time.

    "Several members noted that unless the pace of economic recovery strengthened or underlying inflation moved back toward a level consistent with the [Fed's] mandate, they would consider it appropriate to take action soon," the minutes said.

    The yen was also down against the euro, with EUR/JPY gaining 0.69% to hit 114.59.

    Earlier in the day, official data showed that Japanese core machinery orders jumped unexpectedly in August.
