Amid a persistent interest-rate differential between the U.S. (5.50%) and Japan (0.10%), the Japanese yen has just chalked a 38-year low against the U.S. dollar, with the USD/JPY advancing to levels above the level of 161.00.

Forex traders are watching closely if the Bank of Japan (BOJ) could raise interest rates further based on a stronger economy. The quarterly BOJ Tankan Indexes are good economic indicators. 

According to Trading Central's "Economic Insight", the BOJ Tankan Large Manufacturers Index, to be reported on Wednesday (July 3), may ease to 10 in the second quarter.

In the past 4 releases of Bank of Japan Tankan Large Manufacturers Index, within one hour from the event, USD/JPY rose in 75% of times (3 out of 4 releases), and marked a trading range of 20.68 pips on average.
