Yen rebounds from year nadir versus dollar in Asia

Dollar tilted lower against yen away from November 2017 highs for the sixth straight session, following earlier producer prices data from Japan and ahead of US inflation data later today, while markets await the G20 meeting for finance ministers in Bali, expected to include discussions on global growth and trade. 

 

As of 05:58 GMT, USD/JPY shed 0.11% to 112.15, with an intraday high at 112.31, and the lowest since September 18 at 111.97. 

 

Earlier Japanese data showed producer prices rose 0.3% in September, compared to no change in August, while on a yearly basis, prices rose 3.0%, beating estimates of 2.9%. 

 

Now investors await US consumer prices data, expected with a 0.2% increase, while analysts expect a 2.4% yearly increase, slowing down from 2.7% in August. 

 

Core prices are estimated with a 0.2% increase, up from 0.1% in August, while analysts expect a 2.3% yearly increase, up from 2.2%, as unemployment claims are estimated to have increased 3 thousand last week to 210K.
