The US Federal Reserve signaled that it was still on track to raise interest rates by the end of the year, while the Bank of Japan maintained its extremely loose policy. In addition, there are expectations that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will call a snap election next month to strengthen his power base. As his policies weaken the yen, this has a positive impact on USD/JPY.
