FXStreet (Córdoba) - The dollar extended losses into a third day versus the yen and fell to a 1-month low Friday after a string of weak US data, gave investors no reason to expect a Fed rate hike anytime soon.



The USD/JPY broke below the 101.50 support area and slid to a low of 101.30, last seen May 21, before finding support and stabilizing in a range. At time of writing, the pair is trading at the 101.35 zone, still down 0.36% on the day.



The US calendar is pretty light for the rest of the day, with only the Reuters/Michigan consumer confidence index to note, which could confine the USD/JPY to rangebound trading into the weekend.
