Annual changes in consumer prices rose to meet the Federal Reserve’s inflation target for the first time in 9-months, but the April Consumer Price Index did not beat expectations and therefore failed to significantly push USD/JPY above support. Also announced on Thursday morning, Initial Jobless Claims fell to a seven year low in the week ending on May 10.

Employment and inflation make up the Federal Reserve’s dual mandate guiding monetary policy. In a statement at the end of its April meeting, the Fed said that growth in economic activity had picked up and inflation expectations remained stable. The Fed also said that it will likely remain appropriate to maintain the current rate target for considerable time, meaning that it might take a break of expectations in inflation or employment to significantly change the course of US Dollar trading.
