USD/JPY: general review on 09.02.2015

The US dollar rose against a basket of major currencies, including yen, on Friday given the positive data on US employment.  New non-farm payrolls rose to 257000 which is more than an expected increase of 234000. That increased the prospect of the FED raising interest rates in the middle of this year. Besides, the hourly wage rate increased by 0.5%, but the unemployment rate rose too, to a level of 5.7%, whereas economists had been expecting it to remain at the same level of 5.6%.
