Talking Points:

US ADP Employment Change disappointed in May as it registered at the lowest level since January. ADP is closely watched by market participants to gauge a feel for the highly anticipated jobs report - US NFP. The miss and downward revision does not promote a positive tone moving into the report on Friday. DailyFX Quantitative Strategist David Rodriguez discusses how key events may disappoint, putting the recent US Dollar a rally at risk.

The Japanese Yen rose against the US Dollar, extending gains from earlier. On a broader perspective, USDJPY is positive above 101.75, according to DailyFX Strategist Jamie Saettele.
