05:00 Japan BoJ Monetary Policy Statement


The yen fell versus all of its most-traded counterparts, paring a monthly advance, after the Bank of Japan added monetary stimulus for a second time in three months. The yen dropped against the dollar and euro after BOJ officials increased the bank’s asset-purchase fund by 10 trillion yen ($123 billion) to 40 trillion yen, according to a statement released in Tokyo today. All 14 economists in a Bloomberg News survey predicted additional easing with most expecting an increase in asset buying ranging from 5 trillion yen to 10 trillion yen.

The euro fell, extending a monthly loss against the dollar and yen, after Standard & Poor’s cut Spain’s sovereign debt rating, adding to concern the region’s financial woes are spreading. S&P downgraded Spain’s long-term credit rating two levels to BBB+ yesterday from A, saying the outlook is negative as the country’s recession undermines efforts to cut the budget deficit.
