Investing.com - The dollar moved higher against the yen on Wednesday, regaining ground after the yen briefly touched session highs when the Bank of Japan kept monetary policy unchanged.
USD/JPY was up 0.15% to 104.44, after falling to lows of 103.97 earlier in the session.
The pair was likely to find support at 103.85, the low of January 20 and resistance at 104.73, Tuesday’s high.
The BoJ kept monetary policy unchanged following its monthly policy meeting and maintained its assessment that Japan''s economy "has continued to recover moderately."
