The yen gained against all of its major peers before a Group of 20 meeting at which officials are expected to debate the currency’s recent declines. The G-7 finance ministers and central-bank governors released a statement yesterday that appeared to signal acceptance for a weaker yen, so long as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government doesn’t actively pursue devaluation. This position was then challenged when an unidentified official from a G-7 nation issued a clarification saying that the group was concerned about excessive moves in the yen and Japan’s practice of giving guidance on its value. Japanese Vice Finance Minister Takehiko Nakao declined to comment today on the official’s remarks. Finance ministers and central bankers from the G-20, which includes the G-7 and emerging markets such as Brazil, China and India, meet in Moscow on Feb. 15-16.

The Bank of Japan starts a two-day meeting today, and the euro held gains amid optimism Europe can cope with its debt crisis. The BOJ will announce its monetary policy decision tomorrow. Governor Masaaki Shirakawa said last week he will step down with two of his deputies on March 19, about three weeks before his term is due to end.
