Asian session: The dollar touched the weakest almost two-years


The dollar touched the weakest almost two-years against the euro before U.S data that may add to the case for the Federal Reserve to keep its current pace of asset purchases for longer. A report from the department yesterday showed employers added 148,000 workers in September, trailing the increase of 180,000 seen in a Bloomberg poll of economists.

The Aussie dollar touched a four-month high on Australian inflation data before erasing gains. In Australia, core consumer prices gained more than economists forecast last quarter, increasing the likelihood the Reserve Bank will end its two-year easing of monetary policy. The Aussie erased gains after Chinese stocks dropped amid a jump in money market rates.

The pound touched a three-week high against the greenback before the Bank of England releases minutes today from its Oct. 9-10 meeting. The BOE’s Monetary Policy Committee held its target for asset purchases at 375 billion pounds ($609 billion) and kept its key interest rate at a record-low 0.5 percent.

The yen climbed against all its major counterparts amid demand for refuge assets.

GBP / USD: during the Asian session, the pair rose to $ 1.6255

USD / JPY: during the Asian session the pair fell to Y97.25
