Asian session: The euro touched its strongest level in more than 10 weeks

 

The euro touched its strongest level in more than 10 weeks against the dollar before a German report forecast to confirm resilience in Europe’s largest economy.  The 17-nation euro was set for its longest weekly winning streak versus the yen since April 2011 as Group of 20 officials meeting this weekend may discuss committing further resources to Europe’s debt crisis.

Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi said today Europe will be the central topic at the G-20 meeting in Mexico City. European officials will push other G-20 nations to commit fresh cash to the International Monetary Fund to help defuse the region’s fiscal crisis.

Japan is considering contributing $50 billion to the IMF’s European rescue package, the Asahi newspaper reported yesterday, without saying where it obtained the information.

Australia’s dollar rose, extending its second-consecutive weekly gain, as comments by Reserve Bank Governor Glenn Stevens that monetary policy is “about right” reduced investor expectations of interest-rate cuts.

The so-called Aussie strengthened versus 13 of its 16 major counterparts before reports that may show improvement in the U.S. housing market, boosting demand for higher-yielding assets. The currency maintained its advance after former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said he will challenge his successor Julia Gillard in a leadership ballot. Stevens and the central bank board unexpectedly kept Australia’s benchmark interest rate unchanged at 4.25 percent on Feb. 7 after making two quarter percentage-point cuts in the final months of 2011.


EUR/USD: during the Asian session the pair was in a range $1.3360-$1.3380.

GBP/USD: during the Asian session the pair corrected, after yesterday's growth.

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