Over the weekend, First Citizens Bank agreed to assume about $72 billion of Silicon Valley Bank's assets, whose failure had sparked the recent market turmoil, at a discount of $16.5 billion . Furthermore, authorities continued to provide reassurances around the health of the banking system, which remains "sound and resilient" according to readout of Friday's Financial Stability Oversight Council Meeting. 
Meanwhile, Friday's data showed that CPI inflation excluding fresh food, decelerated sharply in Japan in February, at +3.3% y/y. This was smallest increase since September, after having risen up to 4.2% in the prior month, which was the highest since 1981. This would likely give the Bank of Japan the room to maintain its ultra-loose monetary policies, but the next decision is still a month out and will be delivered under a new governor.
The above factors help USD/JPY rebound from this month's slump and break above 23.6% Fibonacci. This gives it the opportunity to challenge the 38.2% level and the EMA200 at around 132.79-133.15, although a catalyst will be required for daily closes above, which would bring 134.74 in its eyesight.
USD/JPY pauses its four week-slump, but the Fed's dovish shift last week  due to fallout from the SVB collapse, may contain the USDOLLAR. Officials project just one more 0.25% rate hike before pausing, with markets being even more dovish. At the time of writing, CME's FedWatch Tool assigns the highest probability to rates having peaked at the current 5.00% and dropping to 4.5% by the end of the year. 
Below the EMA200 bias is on the downside and there is risk for lower lows, although 127.21 seems distant at this stage. The first test for the Fed's conservative approach will come on Friday, with the PCE inflation update, which could determine the pair's trajectory.
