FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY came under pressure Wednesday and dropped to a fresh 1-month low as the ongoing US budget issues continue to weigh on market sentiment.

The USD/JPY has extended its decline into a second day, having lost over 150 pips ever since peaking at 98.72 before the US shutdown went operative. Later during the New York session, the ADP employment report will take special attention as Friday's non-farm payrolls are (at least by now) off due to the government shutdown.
