The yen weakened against its major peers after Japan's Economy Minister Akira Amari backed away from weekend comments that prompted the currency to rally. Japan's currency climbed yesterday after Amari said further weakness may hurt "people's lives" and it was the government's job to minimize that. The minister said today he wouldn't comment on where the yen's decline would end. Amari said today he hopes the exchange rate will stabilize at a level that matches the nation's economic fundamentals. The Bank of Japan starts a two-day policy meeting today. BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said at a government meeting that it's natural for bond yields to rise gradually as the outlook for the economy and consumer prices improves, a Cabinet Office official told reporters yesterday.

The dollar remained lower versus the euro following a decline yesterday before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and other central bank officials speak this week. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard and New York Fed President William C. Dudley will speak today before Bernanke testifies in Congress tomorrow. Bullard said on April 17 that inflation had fallen too far below the Fed's 2 percent goal, and a further drop could prompt increased asset purchases by the central bank.
