    Japanese Yen

    The yen rose from near its weakest level against the dollar since June 2010 after the Bank of Japan (8301) said it will conduct open-ended asset purchases from 2014, disappointing investors who expected bolder action now.

    Japan’s currency advanced at least 0.2 percent against all of its 16 major counterparts after the BOJ said it will buy about 13 trillion yen ($146.6 billion) in assets per month from January 2014 and as it set a 2 percent inflation target. The euro rose for the first time in three days versus the dollar after German investor confidence in January increased to the highest in 2 1/2 years, adding to signs that Europe’s largest economy is gathering momentum.

    The rally in stocks continued Thursday, spurred by all-time highs for U.S. equities and as the Bank of Japan maintained its mega monetary stimulus. The yen weakened and the Australian dollar reversed an advance that saw it jump toward 80 U.S. cents after a jobs report.

    European equities followed markets from Tokyo to Sydney higher, and the MSCI All-Country World Index traded at a record high. With the Bank of Japan delaying the time-frame for reaching its inflation target -- a sign its stimulus is in place for a while to come -- attention turns to the European Central Bank’s meeting for clues on policy paths. Oil held onto gains as stockpiles decreased. The U.S. dollar strengthened for a second day after hitting a 10-month low Tuesday, though it was still down for the week.

    A broad-based rally in commodities from oil to copper underpinned gains in producers of raw materials in Asia, while bonds fell as the Federal Reserve prepares to conclude its policy meeting.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Energy Index jumped 1.3 percent, the biggest gain on the Asian benchmark. Equity markets in Japan and Australia followed the advance in U.S. and European stocks after earnings from Caterpillar Inc. and McDonald’s Corp. led to outsize gains in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Oil rose above $48 a barrel for the first time since early June, while copper extended gains on expectations of increasing demand from China. The Australian dollar declined after inflation data missed estimates.

    Asian stocks fell after surging to the highest level in almost 10 years and European equities look set to open lower with investors assessing the strength of company earnings before American labor-market data provides the latest clues on the health of global growth.

    South Korean shares dropped by the most since November, leading declines in Asia, after President Moon Jae-in announced plans to raise taxes on big corporations. Stocks from Japan to Australia retreated, dragging down the MSCI Asia Pacific Index from its highest since December 2007. The euro, the best-performing Group-of-10 currency this year, maintained most of its surge against the dollar and the 10-year Treasury yield was at 2.26 percent. The greenback held near a two-year low as Federal Reserve speakers expressed caution over further interest-rate increases.

    Asian equities returned to the highest in almost 10 years and European stocks look set to rise after strong U.S. hiring data bolstered optimism about economic growth in the world’s largest economy.

    Japan’s Topix index ended at a two-year high, boosted by earnings at Toyota Motor Corp. and as the yen clung to losses. Benchmarks in Australia, South Korea and Hong Kong also gained, following fresh highs on the Dow Jones Industrial Average when the greenback climbed on better-than-forecast hiring data and a pick up in wage growth in July. Iron ore futures in Singapore surged as steel prices also advanced. Oil held above $49 a barrel ahead of OPEC talks on complying with cuts to reduce global supply.

    A risk-off tone gripped markets on Wednesday, with gold and the Japanese yen advancing and Treasuries edging higher as tension grew between the U.S. and North Korea. European stocks slumped following declines across most of Asia, while oil retreated.

    The yellow metal headed for it’s largest gain this month while the yen and Swiss franc were the biggest gainers among G-10 currencies after President Donald Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric against North Korea to an unprecedented level. Almost every sector of the Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell while emerging markets equities were poised for the biggest drop in more than a month. Oil edged lower on supply concerns and South Africa’s rand extended losses after the president survived a no-confidence vote.

    The risk-off mood that gripped markets last week showed signs of easing, with shares in Europe following Asian equities higher and American stock futures advancing as the prospect of a war between the U.S. and North Korea receded. Havens including gold, Treasuries and the yen fell.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index headed for its first gain in four days, tracking increases across markets including South Korea, Australia and Hong Kong after U.S. officials moved to tamp down fears of imminent war with North Korea. Japanese equities bucked the trend as traders returned after a holiday. Core European government bonds followed Treasuries lower. Bitcoin posted yet another surge

    Asian equities extended gains and the yen tumbled as the prospect of war between the U.S. and North Korea receded, buoying stocks from New York to Tokyo and diverting flows away from haven assets.
    Stock indexes from Tokyo to Hong Kong to Sydney climbed after the S&P 500 Index surged 1 percent. Measures of equity volatility tumbled in Japan and Hong Kong after the CBOE Volatility Index, known as the VIX, slumped 21 percent, paring some of last week’s surge. Federal Reserve Bank of New York chief William Dudley signaled another interest-rate increase this year is very much in the cards and suggested the central bank will announce its taper plans next month, giving the dollar and Treasury yields a boost.

    Asian equities were mixed on Wednesday after an uninspiring U.S. session that saw the dollar grind higher, with attention turning away from geopolitics and back to economic data. European equity-index futures suggested a higher open.

    Markets are settling down after a tumultuous few days spurred by heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. South Korean shares climbed as traders returned from a holiday. The latest data showed American consumers splurged in July, dragging Treasuries lower and buoying the greenback. Gauges of volatility in Japan, Hong Kong and the U.S. continued a retreat as calm returned to stock markets.

    Asian stocks were mixed as investors monitored war drills scheduled for the Korean peninsula and prepared for a key meeting of global central bankers.

    Benchmarks in Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney fell amid thin trading volumes, while they rose in Hong Kong and Shanghai. U.S. stocks rallied on Friday from session lows -- though they still ended the day down -- after the White House announced that Steve Bannon would be leaving his job as chief strategist, capping a tumultuous week for the Trump administration. Investors remain on edge after a terror attack in Barcelona and amid simmering tensions on the Korean peninsula. Oil held onto gains and the yen fell.

    Asian stocks eked out modest gains in thin trading as the yen snapped four days of gains and investors reassessed positions ahead of a meeting of central bankers. Bridgewater Associates’ Ray Dalio said he was reducing risk.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose with U.S. equity-index futures after the S&P 500 Index halted a two-day slide. Stocks from Tokyo to Sydney bounced, coinciding with a speech by President Donald Trump in which he outlined a new strategy for the U.S.’s engagement in Afghanistan. Trading was thin after volumes on the S&P 500 were about 15 percent below the 30-day average on a day highlighted by the first total solar eclipse to sweep the U.S. from coast to coast in 99 years
