The report on the US worker productivity, which revealed a higher-than-anticipated increase in the Q2, resulted in a jump of the USD/JPY currency pair. The Greenback appreciated against the Yen by 0.07% to be seen trading above the 109.69 level after data were published. The Labour Department showed that the nonfarm productivity rose at a 0.9% annual growth pace in the June quarter, above expectations for a 0.7% rise. Experts suggested that an upward move was supported by higher volume of hours worked, but the overall trend was seen weak, raising doubts that the robust US economic growth nearing 3% year-over-year would be achieved even despite Trump's tax cuts, regulatory rollbacks and higher infrastructure spending.
