"10 year notes are holding above 2.60%, up nearly 4 bp on the day, in response to the ADP report," points out Jamie Coleman from FXBeat. "USD/JPY has moved above the 10 and 200-day moving averages and is approaching stops at 101.80."



"USD/JPY continues to rebound in the wake of very firm employment data from ADP, the largest US payrolls processor," Coleman adds. He warns market that "buy stops are seen at the 101.80 level."
