Recovery pushes dollar up against yen
The dollar touched the strongest level against the yen in more than seven months as a government report added evidence to speculation that the labour market is recovering.

The dollar advanced 2.2 per cent, matching the most since the five days ended December 4 to 94.57 yen in New York yesterday.
