The Greenback made the last attempt to rise against the Yen before falling sharply on non-negative US economic data. The USD/JPY added 5 base points, ahead of the sharp fall to the 111.74 area. However, bulls put the pair back to the pre-data level of 112.60.
US consumer inflation growth weakened in October, as the hurricane-related increase in purchases of motor vehicles started to fade.

Recent economic data strengthened projections for the Fed to raise borrowing costs once again in December.
