Euro under pressure in Asia amid ongoing debt woes

OKYO: The euro stayed under pressure in Asia on Friday amid investor jitters over the European debt crisis.

The common currency bought $1.3309 in Tokyo afternoon trade, compared with $1.3327 in London late Thursday. Against the Japanese currency it firmed to 103.03 yen from 102.87.

The dollar edged up to 77.42 yen from 77.11 as Japan’s finance minister said his ministry has been vigilantly watching for signs of speculative yen-buying movement in the foreign exchange markets.

The euro was on a downward trend as investors took a cue from Moody’s downgrade of Hungary’s credit rating, said a senior dealer at a major bank.

“You should expect volatile euro trading ahead as there’s much speculation going around, but what’s for sure is the euro is set to fall in the longer term as the debt woes are just too far from their end,” the dealer said.

German, French and Italian leaders pledged Thursday to propose modifications to European Union treaties to further integrate economic policy, but they played down suggestions that the European Central Bank would have a greater crisis-busting role.

Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi urged European leaders to take more steps to calm markets as the impact of the debt crisis spreads globally. (AFP
