Yen weakness shapes start of week

The main talking point for the start of the week has been Yen weakness which helped to develop great trend line breakouts across the USD/JPY, AUD/JPY and GBP/JPY. There isn't a lot of change across other charts but I am surprised to see the EUR/USD holding up so well considering the US$ strength.
