Asian session: The yen weakened versus all 16 major counterparts

 

 

01:30 Australia National Australia Bank's Business Confidence July -3 4

01:30 Australia New Motor Vehicle Sales (MoM) July -0.6% -0.8%

01:30 Australia New Motor Vehicle Sales (YoY) July +18.4% +5.0%


The yen weakened versus all 16 major counterparts as Asian shares rallied and minutes of the Bank of Japan’s July meeting signaled policy members are considering ways to expand stimulus. Japan’s currency slid for a second day against the euro as Asian equities halted a two-day decline, curbing demand for haven assets. The BOJ avoided adding stimulus at its July meeting, expanding its asset-purchase program to 45 trillion yen ($574 billion) from 40 trillion, while cutting its loan facility to 25 trillion yen from 30 trillion yen.

The euro maintained gains after data today showed France’s economy unexpectedly avoided a contraction and German growth slowed less than forecast during the second quarter. France’s gross domestic product was unchanged in the second quarter from the first, national statistics office Insee in Paris said today in an e-mailed statement. Economists forecast a 0.1 percent decline, according to the median of 26 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey.

Germany’s GDP rose 0.3 percent from the first quarter, when it gained 0.5 percent, the Federal Statistics Office said in Wiesbaden today. Economists predicted a 0.2 percent increase, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg poll. The euro region will report GDP figures later today.

The New Zealand dollar strengthened after the statistics bureau said today sales adjusted for inflation gained 1.3 percent in the three months through June. That compares with a 0.6 percent decline in the first quarter and a 0.7 percent gain estimated in a Bloomberg survey.


EUR / USD: during the Asian session the pair rose to $1.2350.


GBP / USD: during the Asian session the pair rose, approaching $1.5700.


USD / JPY: during the Asian session the pair gain and continued Monday’s growth.
