The dollar dropped against most major peers as Asian shares climbed on Chinese measures to sustain economic growth, curbing demand for refuge assets. People’s Bank of China announced a cut to banks’ reserve requirements.

The euro rose for a third day against the greenback before European finance ministers meet to discuss a second aid package for Greece.  Euro-area finance ministers are set to meet in Brussels to seek agreement on a 130 billion-euro ($172 billion) Greek bailout. Talks on Greece’s second aid package in two years will aim to reconcile demands made on Greek politicians, a debt swap among private creditors, the role of the European Central Bank and concerns the measures won’t bear fruit.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti on Feb. 17 expressed confidence that ministers will resolve open questions. Should they fail to back the bailout at the Brussels meeting, the issue could be pushed to the next European Union summit on March 1.

The yen dropped against 14 of its 16 major peers. A government report showed Japan’s exports fell in January as the currency traded near a record high and amid weaker global demand.

The trade deficit widened to 1.48 trillion yen ($19 billion) and shipments dropped 9.3 percent from a year earlier, the Ministry of Finance said. The median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News was for a trade gap of 1.46 trillion yen and a 9.4 percent decline in exports. Standard and Poor’s today affirmed Japan’s sovereign-debt rating at AA- while maintaining a negative outlook and warning that a downgrade is likely if medium-term growth prospects weaken.


EUR/USD: during the Asian session the pair gain, traded above $1.3200.

GBP/USD: during the Asian session the pair rose.

USD/JPY: during the Asian session the pair gain, updated new month’s high.
