Asian session: The yen strengthened against most of its major peers

 

01:00 China Non-Manufacturing PMI July 56.7 55.6


The yen strengthened against most of its major peers as indications of slowing global growth and concern that Europe’s debt crisis is worsening fueled demand for haven assets. The Japanese currency headed for a sixth weekly gain against the dollar as Asian stocks fell before a report forecast to show the U.S. jobless rate held above 8 percent. U.S. nonfarm payrolls probably increased by 100,000 last month, while the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 8.2 percent, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg News before the Labor Department publishes its monthly report today. The jobless rate has stayed above 8 percent for 41-straight months. The Fed refrained from boosting monetary stimulus at a two- day meeting that ended on Aug. 1, while indicating a sluggish economy may prompt further steps to boost growth.

Demand for the euro was limited after a European Central Bank meeting yesterday failed to deliver measures to persuade investors the region’s fiscal dilemma can be resolved. ECB officials are working on a strategy to buy bonds in sufficient quantities to bring down borrowing costs for the region’s most indebted nations, Draghi said. Details will be released in coming weeks, he told reporters at a news conference yesterday in Frankfurt. The ECB kept its benchmark interest rate at 0.75 percent at its policy meeting yesterday, in line with the forecast of 51 of 55 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News. Four predicted a reduction to 0.5 percent.

Retail sales in the euro zone may have fallen 0.1 percent in June from the previous month, when they grew 0.8 percent, a survey showed before the European Union’s statistics office releases its figures today.
