Asian session: The euro weakened versus the dollar and yen

 

23:50 Japan Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes


The euro weakened versus the dollar and yen before German lawmakers vote tomorrow on aid to recapitalize Spanish banks. Germany’s Finance Ministry formally asked lawmakers in a letter dated July 16 to support Spanish bank recapitalizations of as much as 100 billion euros ($123 billion) by the European Financial Stability Facility and the transfer of the program to the future European Stability Mechanism.

The dollar snapped a one-day advance against the yen on speculation the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book assessment of U.S. economic conditions due today may add to recent signs of weakness and before Chairman Ben S. Bernanke testifies before Congress for a second day. The Fed is due to release its Beige Book survey of business conditions in 12 U.S. districts. The U.S. economy was described as growing at a “moderate pace” pace in the central bank’s June survey.

Japan’s currency gained versus all but one of its 16 major peers as declines in Asian stocks spurred demand for safer assets.


EUR / USD: during the Asian session the pair was trading around $1.2300.

GBP / USD: during the Asian session the pair was trading in range $1.5645-$1.5665.

USD / JPY: during the Asian session the pair fell, retreating from yesterday's high.
