07:10 EDTFX Update: USD-JPY drove broader dollar declines
FX Update: USD-JPY drove broader dollar declines, while strong Eurozone PMI data supported EUR-USD. USD-JPY touched a low of 116.22, the lowest since Nov-17 and some 140 pips down on yesterday's closing level. A lot of commentaries pointed to the extended losses in Japanese stock markets, with the Nikkei closing 2% down today, as driving the yen higher. A mixture of interbank and speculative selling, along with sell-stop orders were also in the mix. Weak PMI figure out of China weighted on stocks in Asia, though equities managed to recover from a six-day losing streak in Europe. EUR-USD, meanwhile, logged a three-week high of 1.2528 in the wake of the PMI data. As from the data influences, there has also been a dollar-negative narrative in markets that says the recent dive in oil prices will strengthen the voice of the doves at the Fed's FOMC this week (announcement Wednesday), though analysts still expect the "considerable time" phrase to be dropped. AUD-USD scraped out a fresh four-year low of 0.8200 before recovering to the mid-0.82s. The minutes to the RBA's December meeting repeated that rate stability is likely most prudent course and that a further fall in currency is needed for economy. Cable rebounded recovered the 1.57 handle after a post-data dip to 1.5610, even though UK November CPI fell to 1.0%, the lowest since September 2002.

06:00 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has led broader dollar declines
FX Action: USD-JPY has led broader dollar declines today. The pair touched a low of 116.22, the lowest point seen since Nov-17 and some 140 pips down on yesterday's closing level. A lot of commentaries are pointing to the extended losses in Japanese stock markets, with the Nikkei closing 2% down today, as driving the yen higher. Interbank and speculative traders have also been riding sell-stop orders. Asia stock markets were affected by the Markit/HSBC Chinese manufacturing PMI for December, which came in at 49.5 in the flash estimate, down on the 49.8 median and the first sub-50 contractionary reading in seven months. European stocks have fared better, managing to rebound from a six-day decline. Bigger picture fundamentals remain yen bearish with PM Abe's landslide victory at the weekend's election giving a fresh mandate to yen-negative 'Abenomics' policies.
