FOREX-Dollar holds near 2-mth high vs yen after Fukui

FOREX-Dollar holds near 2-mth high vs yen after Fukui

Mon Dec 25, 2006 1:32am ET
By Brent Kininmont

TOKYO, Dec 25 (Reuters) - The dollar held near a two-month high against the low-yielding yen on Monday after Bank of Japan Governor Toshihiko Fukui offered no fresh insight to whether the central bank might bump up interest rates next month.

Fukui, addressing a meeting of the Nippon Keidanren business lobby, said there was some weakness in Japanese consumption and consumer prices were rising gradually, although they would eventually accelerate.

Those remarks echoed comments he made last week that prompted market players to scale back expectations that the BOJ would lift the overnight call rate next month to 0.5 percent from the current 0.25 percent.

"(Fukui's) stance was maintained and the possibility of a January action is now in question," said Kikuko Takeda, currency strategist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.

The dollar was little changed on the day at 118.85 yen , just off a two-month high of 118.97 yen struck on Friday.
The euro dipped to $1.3120 from around $1.3130 in late U.S. trade on Friday.

The single European currency edged down to 155.95 yen from around 156.05 yen. The euro hit an all-time high of 156.42 yen last week.
Dealers said trade was lacklustre and volume was thin as investors were reluctant to take fresh positions ahead of year-end holidays, and while markets in Asia, Europe and the United States were closed for Christmas holidays on Monday.

The dollar got a boost on Friday, and was supported on Monday, after the final reading of the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment index in December came in stronger than expected.

That helped to offset tame U.S. inflation data that reinforced the view that the Federal Reserve may have to cut interest rates early next year to counter slowing economic growth.

JAPAN DATA BLAST
Fukui also repeated that the BOJ would adjust rates gradually, although upcoming economic indicators, as ever, would be key.

For more clues about the state of the economy and whether the BOJ will move next month, investors face a raft of data this week, including reports on Tuesday for consumer prices and household spending.

"The market wants to see if CPI figures come out higher than expected, which would prevent expectations for a January rate hike from receding further," said Yuji Kameoka, senior economist at Daiwa Institute of Research.
Economists in a Reuters poll forecast the November reading for the core nationwide consumer price index to show a rise of 0.2 percent from a year earlier, which would be stronger than the rise of 0.1 percent in October.
The yen has been an easy target throughout the year for carry trades in which investors borrow the low-yielding currency to finance purchases of higher yielding assets outside Japan.

Such trades have helped to push the Australian dollar to a succession of nine-year highs and the New Zealand dollar to one-year peaks against the yen.
The Aussie was at 93.15 yen , just below a fresh nine-year peak.

The kiwi -- the highest-yielding currency among industrialised countries -- was at 83.15 yen , near the one-year high around 83.30 yen struck on Friday. (Additional reporting by Rika Otsuka)
