USD/JPY challenges 109.00

FXStreet (Córdoba) - Following a 200-pip drop, USD/JPY found support at the 108.00 area late New York session and resumed the advance Friday as investors await the US nonfarm payrolls report.

USD/JPY staged a recovery but it was capped by the 109.00 level during the European session and entered a sideways phase as traders remain sidelined ahead of the US employment report. Consensus points to a 215K job gain in September following a weak 142K reading in August.
