/www.fxserver.com/ The US dollar was higher against the yen, sustaining Friday's gains and testing the 122 yen resistance level, in active Singapore trade although the Japanese market is closed for a holiday, dealers said.
A dealer with a European brokerage said "there is speculation" that the yen will see sharp falls, adding that many US banks are now looking at the Japanese unit to soften towards the 125/usd level.
"The general sentiment is the yen does not reflect its fundamentals and should weaken against the dollar," he said, adding that lingering worries over a possible US-Iraq war are also contributing to the bearish sentiment on the yen.
