CME Group’s flash data for JPY futures markets noted open interest rose for the second session in a row on Wednesday, now by around 2.5K contracts. On the opposite side, the volume went down for the second straight day, this time by almost 31.3K contracts.

USD/JPY charted an inconclusive session on Wednesday amidst rising open interest and volume. That said, the scenario of extra rangebound looks likely although further decline should not be discarded.
