  • USD/JPY edges higher for the 4th straight session, trades 0.10% higher on the day at 109.35.
     
  • The pair trades with a bullish bias and breakout at 20-DMA could see further upside. Risk-on and US yields rising supporting the dollar higher. 
     
  • Data on Thursday released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that initial weekly jobless claims decreased by 3,000 to 213,000 in the week ending January 11. 
     
  • Further, the Philly Fed Index revealed that the business activity in the manufacturing sector expanded at a more robust pace than expected.
     
  • Japan inflation at 7-month low, no closer to BoJ's 2% target. Could put the BOJ under pressure to ramp up an already massive stimulus program.
     
  • US dollar tumbled across the board overnight following report that US is considering lifting China tariffs.
     
  • However, U.S. Treasury spokesman denied the report about officials considering the option of lifting tariffs on Chinese imports.
