The yen remained weaker on speculation strong U.S. jobs data later this week will boost the likelihood the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates, widening policy divergence with the Bank of Japan.

The Japanese currency dropped 1.7 percent against the greenback in the past four sessions, the longest losing streak in five months. Fed Chair Janet Yellen and other senior central bank officials suggested last week the case for tightening U.S. policy had strengthened, while Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda reiterated his readiness to ease monetary policy further. U.S. economy watchers are turning their attention to Friday�s payrolls report. The Fed and the BOJ have their next policy meetings on Sept. 20-21.

The yen was little changed at 101.79 per dollar as of 9:08 a.m. in Tokyo from 101.92 at the close in New York. The Japanese currency fell to a three-week low of 102.39 Monday. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index, which tracks the greenback against its 10 major peers, was little changed after advancing 0.1 percent for its sixth gain in seven days.
