ForexLive Asia FX news: Japan industrial production flat in July

Forex news for Asia trading Wednesday 31 August 20
The last day in August was a relatively quiet affair here in the Asian morning. USD/JPY managed a pop to above 103.20, which came well after earlier data for preliminary industrial production in Japan (July) disappointed against estimates (see bullets above for the data, but it was a flat reading on the month and suggestive of stall in output again). USD/JPY has subsequently retraced its gain and is just above 103 as of updating.
