FXstreet.com (London) - USD/JPY has been supported sub 102.00 and reached highs of 102.46 from a low of 101.85.

As strategist Lee Hardman at The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ noted, the release of the stronger than expected ADP employment survey from the US yesterday has further heightened investor expectations that the Fed maybegin to taper QE earlier at the 17th-18th December or 28th-29th January FOMC meetings. “The survey highlights that the labour market has remained surprisingly resilient to the government shutdown and debt ceiling uncertainty. The release of the Fed’s Beige Book overnight also revealed that “hiring showed a modest increase or was unchanged across the country””. Next up, NFP’s tomorrow!
