    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.

    Equity markets in Asia were steady as investors awaited clues on monetary policy from heads of some major central banks and kept an eye on U.S. tax reform developments. Bond yields held recent advances.

    Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed little changed after swinging between a gain of 0.7 percent and a drop of 0.3 percent. The gauge had dropped for the past four days. Shares in China slipped after the country’s economic expansion dialed back a notch as factory output, investment and retail sales all decelerated. Australian stocks underperformed regional markets as Royal Dutch Shell Plc sold its entire stake in Woodside Petroleum Ltd., sending its shares down the most in a year.

    Stocks headed for a record close, buoyed by fresh all-time highs for U.S. equities with investors energized by the outlook for profits and tax reform. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index breached the 30,000 level to climb to the highest in a decade.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index climbed above its 2007 peak, with shares higher from Tokyo to Sydney. All major American benchmark equity indexes reached all-time highs on Tuesday and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. lifted its forecast for U.S. stock gains in 2018, saying strong economic growth and tax reform will improve corporate earnings. The Korean won jumped to its highest in more than two years. The dollar maintained losses as the Treasury yield curve flattened further amid a global sovereign-bond rally. Oil headed for its highest close in more than two years.

    A rally that carried stocks to record highs petered out and the dollar was little changed as investors turned their attention to U.S. tax reform ahead of a busy week with data on the health of the world’s biggest economies. An OPEC meeting will discuss extending supply cuts.

    Chinese equities resumed their decline, while Japanese shares ended lower after erasing earlier gains. The Bloomberg dollar index was little changed as the yen was the biggest gainer against the greenback. The South African rand halted its slide triggered by S&P Global Ratings cutting the country’s local-currency debt to junk on Friday, sending the currency 2 percent lower. Bitcoin was up about 17 percent compared with trading late on Friday.

    Economic reports from the U.S., China, Japan and India this week will allow investors to assess progress for global growth. While equities markets trading at record levels show money managers’ enthusiasm for an earnings expansion as economies grow, bond investors are betting inflation concerns will limit the pace at which interest rates will rise in the U.S. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and Russia, a partner in the deal, have crafted the outline of an agreement to extend curbs to the end of next year.

    Stocks in Asia traded mixed as investors assessed gains spurred by the passage of the U.S. tax cuts in the Senate that lifted equities to fresh highs. The Australian dollar jumped on stronger-than-expected retail sales data and comments on inflation from the central bank.


    Benchmark indexes fluctuated in Tokyo as investors rotated out of tech stocks into banks, while Hong Kong shares fell. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index erased earlier losses as S&P 500 Index futures advanced, though tech shares on the Asian gauge declined after the tech-heavy Nasdaq fell. The dollar pulled back as optimism about tax reform died down and Treasury yields were steady in Asia after handing back part of their advance on Monday.

    The Australian dollar advanced to the strongest in more than three weeks after October retail sales beat estimates and the Reserve Bank of Australia said it sees inflation quickening as it left its cash rate at a record-low 1.5 percent for a 15th straight meeting on Tuesday.

    Asian equities were mixed, with stocks rising in Japan, Hong Kong and Australia and falling in China and South Korea. The Australian dollar declined after another disappointing set of economic data.

    In Japan, the Nikkei 225 Stock Average recovered most of its worst slide in nine months after U.S. stocks steadied. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index was up after falling for eight consecutive days to Wednesday.

    Asian stocks built on the strong start to this year and headed for a fresh record high amid optimism in global growth. The yen advanced as traders continued to pile out of bets against the Japanese currency.

    Hong Kong’s benchmark at the one point made a run at its record close since the global financial crisis before turning lower, and Japanese equities rose even in face of the yen’s gain to a four-month high. Softbank Group was leading the Nikkei 225 Stock Average, benefiting from speculation of a listing for its mobile unit. The yuan touched a two-year high after the People’s Bank of China raised the currency’s fixing to the highest since May 2016.

    Both the yen and euro have been lifted by bets the Japanese and European central banks this year will scale back their monetary stimulus. Elsewhere, West Texas Intermediate oil continues to trade above $64, and bitcoin slipped closer towards $13,000. U.S. markets are shut Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday after the S&P 500 Index closed on Friday at an all-time high.

    Asian equities’ best start to a year since 2006 continued Tuesday as most bourses in the region pushed higher. The yen declined amid concern Japanese authorities may want to limit gains that pushed the currency to a four-month high.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific index climbed as advances in the consumer staples and technology sectors offset a drop in materials. Japanese shares closed at multi-decade highs, while stocks in Hong Kong headed for a record. The yen halted a five-day advance as Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said sudden moves in exchange rates are a problem, while declining to comment on levels. Treasuries steadied as the U.S. bond market reopened after a holiday.

    Focus remains on China’s yuan, trading at the strongest level in more than two years and prompting speculation about possible steps to cool its gains.

    The yen climbed to a 15-month high as traders probed Japanese officials’ tolerance for appreciation, hurting the nation’s stocks in what was otherwise a mixed session for Asian equities Wednesday ahead of a key U.S. inflation report.

    Treasuries also advanced, along with gold, giving the moves the flavor of a shift to havens. Futures on the S&P 500 Index rose as did the MSCI Asia Pacific Index of stocks. Shares rose in Hong Kong and Seoul, while they fluctuated in Shanghai before a week-long Lunar New Year holiday. Volatility lingered, albeit down from the extremely elevated levels reached last week.

    Japanese stocks extended a rally in global equities even as the yen rose to its strongest in 15 months, with trading muted due to holiday closures across Asia. The yield on 10-year Treasuries hovered near 2.9 percent and the dollar traded lower against all major currencies.

    Australian shares closed slightly lower, but with most major markets across Asia Pacific shut for Lunar New Year holidays, volumes in the region were light. The S&P 500 topped 2,700 Thursday as U.S. equities capped their best five-day run since 2011. Japan’s currency pushed past 106 yen per dollar for the first time since November 2016 on a day when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated Haruhiko Kuroda to lead the Bank of Japan for another five-year term. The euro rose to its strongest against the greenback in over three years.

    Japanese shares led Asia higher Monday with the Topix index climbing the most in six weeks as a rally in the yen faded and U.S. equities capped their best week in five years. The dollar steadied against major peers and oil climbed above $62 a barrel.

    Asian shares are building on their best week since September 2016, with stocks in Seoul, Sydney and Singapore also gaining, even as markets in Hong Kong and China are closed for the Lunar New Year holiday and in the U.S. for Presidents’ Day. S&P 500 Index futures rose after the benchmark closed little changed Friday as investors assessed the implications of new indictments in the Russia/U.S. election investigation. The index ended about 4 percent higher for the week and the 10-year Treasury yield fell back below 2.9 percent.
