US dollar touches the best levels of the day

The US dollar hit a fresh multi-week high against the yen in a rush up to 114.37. The final twenty pips came in a run on stops.

Shortly afterwards, EUR/USD slipped to a session low as well, edging below 1.0860 then falling to 1.0855.

But both USD/JPY and EUR/USD hesitated after making the moves and have retraced, at least partly.
