USD/JPY edges lower despite ADP gain

FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/JPY inched lower within its daily range following the release of the ADP employment report for the US.

However, upbeat data failed to support the dollar that continues to pullback from fresh multi-year highs above 110.00. At time of writing, USD/JPY is trading at 109.70, 0.09% above its opening price, but down from 109.90 pre data.
