China policy hopes support Asia FX, won up after central bank  SINGAPORE: Most emerging Asian currencies rose on Thursday as slowing inflation and output in China spurred hopes of more policy stimulus, and the South Korean won edged up after the central bank held rates steady and on foreigners' massive stock demand. The Taiwan dollar enjoyed financial inflows, while the Malaysian ringgit strengthened past a psychological resistance at 3.1000 per dollar. China's annual consumer inflation fell to a 30-month low of 1.8 percent in July from June's 2.2 percent, while the producer price index dropped 2.9 percent in July from a year earlier, both powering Asian stocks to a three-month high. Annual growth in factory production of the world's second-largest economy slowed to the weakest in just over three years and below market expectations with retail sales and fixed-asset investment expansion weaker than forecasts. "The data fanned hopes for some monetary easing from China and supported sentiment. I see mild support to Asian FX," said ...

Investors anxious about the euro zone's debt crisis had sought a ...

Yuan strongest against dollar since early July on dollar hedging  SHANGHAI: The spot yuan traded at its strongest against the dollar since July 5, continuing the narrowing trend that began on Tuesday, as banks in China moved to reduce their exposure to the risk of further slides in the dollar.

Data showed China's annual consumer inflation fell to a 30-month low in July, suggesting that country's central bank can follow up rate cuts in June and July to stimulate the economy.

A$ gets lift from jobs data, NZ$ a black eye  WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian dollar rose on Thursday after a robust jobs report prompted investors to widen the odds of further cuts in interest rates, in a sharp contrast to a weak labour reading in New Zealand which weighed on its currency. The Aussie dollar climbed to a session high of $1.0603 but was unable to pass heavy resistance at $1.0604, the four-month high hit on Tuesday. It last fetches $1.0590, a gain of nearly half a ...

Yen weakens ahead of Bank of Japan policy decision  TOKYO: The yen weakened in Asian morning trade Thursday as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) wraps up a two-day meeting amid speculation over whether policymakers will launch further easing measures.

C$ hits 3-month high on central bank hopes  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar touched a three-month peak against its US counterpart on Wednesday, supported by recovering commodity prices and some belief central banks around the world will step in to prop up their economies.

The Canadian dollar surged ...
