Yen gains as BoJ sounds upbeat, refrains from more stimulus LONDON: The yen rose on Tuesday after the Bank of Japan held off on expanding its stimulus programme, with Governor Haruhiko Kuroda maintaining his optimism about the country's economic outlook. The outcome was expected, but some market players had hoped for a surprise easing because of weak economic data over recent weeks. Kuroda gave no hints about any further easing, telling a press conference that Japan's economy continued to recover moderately and that he expected exports to rise gradually. The dollar fell 0.6 percent to 119.54 yen and the euro was down by a similar margin to trade at 135.20 yen. Traders said the safe-haven yen was likely to be underpinned by any signs of stock markets faltering on worries about a US interest rate increase or a slowdown in China. "Kuroda sounded surprisingly upbeat and that is why dollar/yen is edging higher," said Alvin Tan, currency strategist at Societe ...

Sterling pulls away from 4-month low against dollar LONDON: Sterling pulled away from a four-month low against the dollar on Monday but was still almost 4 percent lower than two weeks ago, with investors having pushed back their bets on when the Bank of England will raise interest rates until well into next year. A disappointing report last week from Britain's dominant services sector, which grew at its weakest pace in over two years in August, added to doubts over whether the BoE ...

Dollar drops 1pc vs yen as stocks fall before US jobs data LONDON: The dollar fell on Friday while demand for the safe-haven yen picked up as stocks weakened, with traders increasingly certain that a key US jobs report due later is unlikely to push the Federal Reserve to raise rates. Traders said a non-farm payrolls report which is in line with expectations, or even a slightly better-than-expected reading, would be unlikely to alter expectations that the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates later this month. ...
