The Philadelphia Federal Reserve’s business activity index to 19. 8 from 12. 5 in June. Readings above zero signal expansion.
The weekly jobs report is the latest sign that the U. S. economy is recovering and that could lead to further upside for oil because the jobs picture is seen as an integral part of crude demand. The U. S. , the world’s largest oil consumer, added 195,000 jobs in June the Labor Department said earlier this month.
On Wednesday, the U. S. Energy Information Administration said in its weekly report that U. S. crude oil inventories fell by 6. 9 million barrels last week, compared to expectations for a decline of 2 million barrels.

In Asian trading Friday, USD/JPY fell 0. 13% to 100. 30 after earlier trading as high as 100. 87. The pair was likely to find support at 99. 03, Wednesday’s low and resistance at 101. 20, the high of July 10.
The greenback turned in a strong showing against the yen during Thursday’s U. S. session, soaring 0. 74% after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said in congressional testimony the central bank could scale back its asset purchases if the economy continues to improve, but added that there was no “preset course. ”
Bernanke said the bank’s bond purchase program could be tapered at a faster pace, slower pace or even temporarily increased depending on economic and financial developments.
The dollar was supported by a pair of bullish data points. In U. S. economic news out Thursday, the U. S. Labor Department said initial claims for jobless benefits slid by 24,000 to 334,000 last week. The less volatile four-week moving average dropped by 5,250.

Traders are also looking toward this weekend’s elections that will decide control of Japan’s upper house of parliament. It is widely expected that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party will gain control of the upper house.
