The Japanese yen firmed against its major counterparts in the Asian session on Wednesday amid safe-haven status, as tech shares slipped following a jump in treasury yields as investors worried about an aggressive tightening of monetary policy to combat inflation.

Reversing from its previous lows of 114.79 against the greenback, 129.99 against the euro and 82.54 against the aussie, the yen moved up to a 2-day high of 114.21, more than 3-week high of 129.39 and a 4-week high of 82.08, respectively. The yen is seen finding resistance around 112.00 against the greenback, 126.00 against the euro and 80.00 against the aussie.

The yen rebounded to 91.28 against the loonie and 77.51 against the kiwi, following its early lows of 91.84 and 77.81, respectively. If the yen rises again, it may test resistance around 90.00 against the loonie and 76.00 against the kiwi.
