The yen fell versus all of its 16 major counterparts after the Bank of Japan announced larger- than-expected monthly bond purchases at the conclusion of a two- day meeting today. Japan’s currency slid against the euro and the dollar as BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and his peers adopted a two-year time horizon to achieve their 2 percent annual inflation goal. Today’s meeting was the first to be led by Kuroda since he took office last month. Japan’s central bank said it will buy 7 trillion yen ($74.3 billion) of bonds a month, exceeding the median 5.2 trillion yen predicted by economists surveyed by Bloomberg News before today’s decision.

Australia’s dollar gained for a fifth day as traders pared bets on interest-rate cuts after retail sales climbed by the most in more than three years. The so-called Aussie traded 0.2 percent from the strongest level in 10 weeks versus the U.S. currency as retail sales jumped 1.3 percent in February and building approvals rebounded.  Building approvals rebounded 3.1 percent in February from a revised 2.0 percent drop in January. A gauge of Australia’s services industry advanced to the highest level in 14 months.
