“As mentioned in the news if the Fed raises interest rate to 0.35% that may cause a solid movement in the price. Therefore, my forecast is bearish.”

EUR/JPY to test the 137 area once again
“At the margin, there are small downside risks to the ECB inflation estimates. But at the same time some of the external factors are more supportive medium-term: lower oil prices is good for growth as are potentially lower interest rates and a weaker currency.” 
- Morgan Stanley (based on Reuters)
The European currency declined against the Japanese Yen yesterday, but found support in form of the 136.00 psychological level. The strong cluster around 135.55 keeps providing substantial support, while the group of significant levels around 137.00 are to limit the gains.

Dukascopy Fundamental Analysis
Fed to hike interest rates in September as economy gains momentum  
The Fed remains on track to hike interest rates later this year, with odds rising that the decision will come as soon as its next monetary policy meeting in September, as the US economy continues to perform in line with expectations. The decision to keep rates near at all-time low for at least a few more weeks was unanimous, supported by all ten voting members of the FOMC. Nevertheless, a number of those policy makers have said in recent months that they do not think the Fed should wait much longer. 
Expert Commentary
"Due to the fundamental basis the inflation outlook is very benign, and the low inflation environment should support bond market in order to prevent yields on rising too far."
- Richard Franulovich, Senior Currency Strategist at Westpac, on US economy and Greenback 
I would say that I broadly agree with that point of view. I sympathize a lot with James Bullard’s perspective on the US economy and US interest rate. The US recovery is quite mature and even now there is not that much of inflation pressure, and the monetary policy settings are far too accommodative. >>
