For the 24 hours to 23:00 GMT, the USD strengthened 0.42% against the JPY and closed at 102.21, after data indicated that the US economy added more-than-expected private sector jobs in June, while the unemployment rate unexpectedly fell in the same period.
In the Asian session, at GMT0300, the pair is trading at 102.14, with the USD trading 0.07% lower from yesterday’s close.

With the US closed for holiday today and no economic releases from Japan, trading trends would be determined by global factors.
