"Two events that could set the stage for a rate hike at the FOMC meeting on 15- 16 December are Fed Chair Janet Yellen's congressional testimony on 3 December and the release of US payroll figures the following day."

"If a EUR decline should add to the sense of USD strength and US data should prove steady, the JPY could also be driven downward."
