Jan 6 (Reuters) - The dollar rose to session highs against a number of major currencies after December's U.S. non-farm payrolls report showed a slowing in hiring but an increase in wages, setting the economy up for further interest rate increases from the Federal Reserve this year.
The dollar rose to a session high against the yen of 116.42 yen, while the euro, after hitting a one-week high immediately after the report's release, fell to a session low of $1.0547.
The dollar also hit session highs against the Swiss franc and the British pound. (Reporting by Dion Rabouin; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
