USD can be influenced by labour market data (in particular NFP results and the level of unemployment), GDP and inflation data, interest rates and the Fed. Lately, quantitative easing, or the possibility of it, by the Fed and the notion that the US dollar may be a safe haven has factored into investors decisions when trading USD. The yen is also sometimes thought of as a safe haven trade, and the currency is sometimes hit with repatriation flows during times of economic crisis. Also, domestic data has an impact on the price of JPY, especially trade balance, inflation, employment and GDP data.
