(Reuters) – The dollar gained against the
yen and dollar on Friday after an array of U.S. data.

Business activity in the U.S. Midwest contracted this month
for the first time since September 2009, as new orders sank, a
report showed on Friday.

U.S. consumer sentiment rose to its highest level in four
months in September as Americans saw better prospects for the
job market and economy, a survey released on Friday

The dollar hit a session high of 77.85 yen and last
traded at 77.84, up 0.3 percent on the day.

The euro hit a session low of $1.2877 and last traded
