    USD/JPY failed to sustain intraday gains and turned south during the American session as ADP-inspired gains proved to be short-lived.

    USD/JPY peaked at 114.54 as the knee-jerk reaction to employment data, but it has been moving lower ever since. The pair fell back below 114.00 and posted a fresh daily low of 113.62 in recent dealings. At time of writing, USD/JPY is trading at 113.65, now 0.28% below its opening price.
