Dollar, euro rally fizzles in Asian trade  TOKYO: The dollar and euro's rally against the yen retreated in afternoon Asian trade on Friday, after earlier soaring on monetary easing comments from the man tipped to become Japan's next premier.   The dollar weakened to 80.99 yen in Tokyo from 81.16 yen in New York late Thursday, while the euro bought 103.41 yen, down from 103.69 yen in US trade.   The European currency fetched $1.2767 against $1.2778 in New York after it weathered widely expected news that the 17-nation eurozone tipped back into recession in the third quarter.   On Thursday, the yen sank after Shinzo Abe, head of the Liberal Democratic Party, called for "unlimited" easing by the Bank of Japan, and vowed to strike an agreement with the central bank over further policy measures if he wins the country's top political job after a December 16 election.   But the comments have stoked questions about how Abe would force such a deal on ...

China SHANGHAI: China's central bank forced the yuan to weaken on Thursday, pulling it off a record high struck the previous day by setting a weaker official midpoint for the daily trading range, defying market signals for an even stronger yuan.   The spot yuan opened at 6.2276, its strongest permitted intra-day level, and stayed there through to early afternoon, unable to recapture Wednesday's record-strong close of 6.2252.   The People's Bank of China (PBOC) set the daily midpoint at ...
Euro off 2-month low after Fed, outlook uncertain  TOKYO: The euro hovered above a two-month low on Thursday, having halted a five-day losing streak the previous day on profit-taking, helped by minutes from the US Federal Reserve supporting more bond buying next year.   The euro has decoupled from other risk currencies, which were hit by fears that political gridlock could push the US over its "fiscal cliff" and by an upsurge of violence in the Middle East.   The yen showed signs of stabilising after suffering ...
