USD/JPY extends rebound gains as US stocks fall back

Well, it seems the higher than forecast prices paid element of the US ISM index has had an impact across the markets and helped to push the US yields back up again and that has supported a deeper rebound in the US dollar. The USD/JPY is now approaching the 153 handle and the GBP/USD is now more than 100 pips below its earlier highs.
