    The Japanese yen hit its weakest level in more than a week after Japan’s opposition leader and frontrunner to become the next prime minister suggested the Bank of Japan could consider buying foreign bonds as part of its monetary easing programme.

    The dollar rose 0.5 per cent against the yen to hit a session high of Y82.74 on the comments, reported in local media, by Shinzo Abe, leader of the Liberal Democratic party, to trade close to a seven-month high hit the previous week. The euro climbed 0.7 per cent to Y107.66, its strongest level against the yen since April.

  • Why Did the Dow Stocks You Own Fall Today?

    The markets received very little economic news today, and perhaps that’s why the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX: ^DJI  ) moved so very little. The index closed the day just slightly higher, up 3.76 points or 0.03%, and now sits at 13,025. Only 18 of the Dow’s 30 components ended the trading session in the green, and we can blame the Dow’s poor performance on a number of different companies, which I have done today. This afternoon I discussed why Merck (NYSE: MRK  ) , Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT  ) , and Travelers(NYSE: TRV  ) all moved lower. Read about what caused those four companies to fall into the red by clicking here or stick around to learn why Du Pont (NYSE: DD  ) , Caterpillar(NYSE: CAT  ) , and Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO  ) also moved lower.

  • Federal Government to Sell Wind Farm Leases

    The federal government plans to sell leases for wind farms off the coasts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Virginia, the first time it has sold competitive leases for wind energy on the outer continental shelf, officials said Friday. The leases for the two areas, which total more than 430 square miles, will be sold next year, the Interior Department and its Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said. One area for lease is about 10 miles off Rhode Island’s shore, and the other is about 27 miles off the southern part of Virginia. Officials said each area could be developed to generate enough electricity to power 700,000 homes.
