While we await the details, this beat might not be good enough for a market looking for a big rebound in Friday’s NFP. USDJPY has ticked up to a new high of 114.16 from 114.00. Not exactly ripping the roof off is it?

So far the only currency taking a hit is EURUSD which has dropped to 1.1617 from 1.1638.
