    Japanese/English The financial turmoil experienced in Asia appears to be continuing into the new year. The crisis was sparked in late 1997 by the sharp devaluation of several Southeast Asian currencies. The Thai baht plunged to a record low on Monday in the first day of domestic trading of 1998, passing the milestone of 50 baht to the U-S dollar. Dealers said the decline was triggered by a fall in other regional currencies on Friday. And in Japan, stocks fell on the first trading day when investors back from their weeklong holiday dumped shares amid fear of further business failures.

  • Market Report - Nikkei Slips on Yen

    In today's market report... Asian stocks inched higher, keeping a global rally alive, although the strong yen weighed on Japanese exporters. The Japanese currency hit a fresh 15-year peak, partly on speculation that Naoto Kan would beat Ichiro Ozawa and remain Japan's prime minister. Japan did not intervene in the currency market during Kan's three months as premier, while Ozawa has pledged to weaken the yen. Democratic Party lawmakers later voted to keep Kan as party leader and stay as prime minister. The result sent the yen down temporarily to another new 15-year peak of 83.01. Tokyo stocks slipped from a 3-week high ahead of the election result, with declines led by industrial robot-maker Fanuc and top automaker Toyota. Sydney stocks outperformed, as miners such as BHP...

    English/Nat Tokyo shares have tumbled a day after posting their biggest gain since January, while the dollar took a breather after its free-fall the day before. The Nikkei share average was down more than five percent by Thursday afternoon, as shares in leading exporters were sold amid worries that a surge in the yen against the dollar could hit profits. The dollar fell a stunning 8 percent, partly because of optimism that Japan is close to a deal to restructure its bloated banking sector. It was the biggest one-day drop in percentage terms in a quarter of a century. The dollar was trading at around 120.60 yen at midday, a spectacular fall of about 12 yen from just 24 hours earlier. Currency traders said there was still a strong view that the yen would again fall back in...

The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average fell nearly 30 points to its lowest close so far this year. Shares were pushed down by fears that more financial sector companies could fold in the early part of 1998 - following the recent collapse of sector giant Yamaichi Securities.

    English/Nat Japan's benchmark stock index rose on Thursday to its highest closing level so far this year on continued buying by foreign investors.

On Wednesday, the average had closed up by point-45 per cent, its previous highest close this year. Analysts hailed the market climb, but cautioned investors against seeing an early turnaround in the Japanese economy. Tokyo share prices started lower on profit-taking following recent gains.

And as the government struggles to rebuild--a spokesman says banks may be asked to ease loans for TEPCO, the owner of the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant. That was bad news for banks today; but the markets were good to Japan's automakers. Here's more. Japan's Nikkei average hit a two-week low on Friday (May 13), as bank shares tumbled after the government spokesman said that banks are likely to be asked to ease troubled TEPCO's loan burden. The benchmark Nikkei average closed, down 0.7 (seven tenths of a percent) percent at 9,648, while the broader Topix fell 1.1 percent to just under 840. Shares in utilities also took a hit, after Japan's government approved a plan to help TEPCO compensate victims of the crisis at its tsunami-crippled nuclear plant. Foreign investors flocked to buy automakers like Nissan and Toyota, due to concrete details of their post-earthquake recovery plans. Nissan gained 3.7 percent to 824 yen after the carmaker reported a stronger than expected 7.2 percent rise in quarterly operating profit, despite Japan's earthquake. It also predicted its global output would return to normal by October. Toyota rose 1.3 percent to 3,415 yen and Honda gained 1.6 percent to 3,150 yen. And commodity stocks extended their losses, with Index shedding 1.6 percent to 554,000 yen, JX Holdings slipping 1.7 percent to 528 yen and Sumitomo Metail Mining dropping 1.4 percent to 1,333 yen, hit by ongoing jitters about volatility in commodity prices.

Japanese/English The financial turmoil experienced in Asia appears to be continuing into the new year. The crisis was sparked in late 1997 by the sharp devaluation of several Southeast Asian currencies. The Thai baht plunged to a record low on Monday in the first day of domestic trading of 1998, passing the milestone of 50 baht to the U-S dollar. Dealers said the decline was triggered by a fall in other regional currencies on Friday. And in Japan, stocks fell on the first trading day when investors back from their weeklong holiday dumped shares amid fear of further business failures. In an annual New Year's rite, Tokyo stock exchange officials and brokerage employees gathered on the trading floor to welcome the first day of trading in 1998 with short, sharp bursts of coordinated hand-clapping. Many of the women present wore colourful kimonos to the ceremony, which was held before the start of trading. Japan's stock market has been shaken by a recent string of corporate failures, including the collapse of "Big Four" broker Yamaichi Securities Co. in November and major food company Toshoku Ltd. last month. These and other high profile failures contributed to the Nikkei average's 21 percent, decline in 1997. The Chairman of the Exchange called for sound fiscal reporting and responsibility by corporate Japan in his New Year message. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) 'We strongly expect that the related industries also hold the spirit of self discipline and they make further effort to keep the healthy state of management.' SUPER CAPTION: Mitsuhide Yamaguchi, Chairman, Tokyo Stock Exchange Outside protesters handed out pamphlets to stock exchange workers. The protesters were calling for corporate Japan to clean up its act by stopping the paying off of racketeers. The benchmark Nikkei 225 Stock Average sank 301.90 points, or 1.98 percent, to 15,258.74 in an abbreviated half-day of trading. Full-day trading will resume on Tuesday. A loss on the first day of trading has long been considered an ill omen. Traditionally, many dealers have stepped in to push up the market at the outset of trading. But no such moves were evident on Monday. Analysts expect the economy to continue its downward trend until the Autumn when corporate Japan finalises its restructuring to a more streamlined internationally competitive system. SOUNDBITE: (English) 'Basically the market is going to focus on the fundamentals, and the fundamentals of the Japanese economy - is it going up or is it going down and it looks as over the next six months the economy will fall into recession and as such the Stock Market outlook is not very rosy.' SUPER CAPTION: Jesper Koll, Vice President JP Morgan Securities Asia Koll predicts the yen could weaken to 140 or 145 as the Japanese economy slides toward recession. Meanwhile the U-S dollar was sharply higher against the Japanese currency compared to its level in Tokyo last Tuesday. But it slipped from late Friday in New York. Traders said the U-S dollar has been buoyed by worries over the health of Japan's financial system, yet subjected to bouts of profit-taking by Japanese exporters and speculators.

In today's market report... Asian stocks inched higher, keeping a global rally alive, although the strong yen weighed on Japanese exporters. The Japanese currency hit a fresh 15-year peak, partly on speculation that Naoto Kan would beat Ichiro Ozawa and remain Japan's prime minister. Japan did not intervene in the currency market during Kan's three months as premier, while Ozawa has pledged to weaken the yen. Democratic Party lawmakers later voted to keep Kan as party leader and stay as prime minister. The result sent the yen down temporarily to another new 15-year peak of 83.01. Tokyo stocks slipped from a 3-week high ahead of the election result, with declines led by industrial robot-maker Fanuc and top automaker Toyota. Sydney stocks outperformed, as miners such as BHP Billiton rose for a second day this week on an improved metals demand outlook from China. The All-Ordinaries rallied to a fresh four-month high, closing a quarter-of-a-percent up. Other Asian markets traded mixed after Monday's rally, with investors eyeing U.S. retail sales figures due later on Tuesday. Hong Kong's Hang Seng found mild support from banking stocks while technology shares led Taiwan's benchmark to a half-percent gain. Real estate shares weighed slightly on the Shanghai Composite midday. South Korea's KOSPI eased back from 27-month highs, although shares of Hyundai Motor rose on news the carmaker would build a third plant in China. The benchmark index ended 0.2 (two tenths of a percent) percent down in Seoul.

English/Nat Tokyo shares have tumbled a day after posting their biggest gain since January, while the dollar took a breather after its free-fall the day before. The Nikkei share average was down more than five percent by Thursday afternoon, as shares in leading exporters were sold amid worries that a surge in the yen against the dollar could hit profits. The dollar fell a stunning 8 percent, partly because of optimism that Japan is close to a deal to restructure its bloated banking sector. It was the biggest one-day drop in percentage terms in a quarter of a century. The dollar was trading at around 120.60 yen at midday, a spectacular fall of about 12 yen from just 24 hours earlier. Currency traders said there was still a strong view that the yen would again fall back in the longer term, but at the same time predicted that the climb would continue for now. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It looks like a change in trend for the yen. This kind of move doesn't come very often and now we're starting to see some people reviewing their views on the yen and saying well, maybe it isn't going to weaken any further." SUPER CAPTION: Jason James, Head of Research, HSBC Securities, Japan There were a number of reasons for the yen's strong performance. There's optimism that Japan's government will soon enact a bill designed to strengthen the country's ailing banks. The ruling Liberal Democratic Party had been wrangling with opposition forces for weeks over the bank plan but the major sticking points had been resolved by the time the bill was submitted to Parliament on Wednesday The possibility of large-scale extra spending by the Japanese government to stimulate the economy also played a part. In addition, previously upbeat views on the U-S economy have dimmed, raising further worries about the negative impact on Japanese exporters' profits. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's remarks hinting at further rate cuts weighed on dollar sentiment, dealers said. Tokyo stock prices fell as investors collected their profits. It followed the market's second-largest point gain for the year. Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei Stock Average of 225 selected issues fell 278.26 points, or 2.01 percent, to 13,547.35 in the first 30 minutes of trading.

English/Nat The Japanese stock market closed on a twelve year low on Thursday, falling nearly 2 percent to 13,197.12 -- its lowest close since February, 1986. Traders were alarmed by the latest report on business sentiment - the Tankan - which showed confidence at its lowest level for three-and -a-half years. The manufacturing sector took a beating on the Tokyo stock exchange Thursday following the early morning release of a key business confidence survey. The Bank of Japan's quarterly Tankan survey on business sentiment showed levels of confidence at record lows. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average of 225 selected issues fell 209.27 points, or 1.56 percent, to 13,197.12 at the close - the lowest since February 1986. On the Tokyo foreign exchange market, the dollar traded moderately higher against the yen in reaction to the survey. . It rose to 136.66 yen in late trading, up 0.94 yen from late Wednesday in Tokyo. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have to say I think a lot of people have kind of given up on Japan for the time being. They've put it in the ice age and they're waiting for it to thaw out. But I think that until the financial system really gets fixed I think a lot of people are still very, very concerned about Japan. And I think such concern is well warranted." SUPER CAPTION: Michael J. Naldrett, Dresdner Kleinwort Benson Japan is stuck in its worst recession in half a century, its economy dragged down by massive bad loans in its financial sector and sales dampened by the Asian currency crisis. The Tankan business confidence survey indicates that companies expect their earnings and financing to worsen further. Small and medium business in Japan is growing increasingly frustrated at the Obuchi government for being slow to inject public money into the economy.

Natural Sound Trading was mixed on the Tokyo stock market on Monday as doubts lingered over the health of Japan's economy and financial system. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average fell nearly 30 points to its lowest close so far this year. Shares were pushed down by fears that more financial sector companies could fold in the early part of 1998 - following the recent collapse of sector giant Yamaichi Securities. The yen finished trading marginally higher against the U-S dollar. On the close of trading last Friday, the Nikkei Stock Average had lost more than three per cent of its value. It was no wonder that the market got off to a shaky start on Monday when many investors stayed away. Some investors - rocked by a string of Japanese corporate failures in recent months - sold off their stocks. They feared that more Japanese companies could face insolvency in the coming months. Companies which have collapsed recently include Yamaichi Securities, Japan's fourth-largest brokerage, and Nitto Kogyo, a major golf course management firm. The fall in shares helped the yen to start trading higher, but later in the day it too fell. This was despite a strong verbal intervention by the Japanese Vice Finance Minister Eisuke Sakakibara during a television interview. He said the government would do its utmost to support the yen. Meanwhile, Japan's Foreign Minister Keizo Obuchi arrived in Seoul on Monday for talks aimed at stabilising the South Korean economic crisis. Major banks from Japan, the United States and Europe will also meet on Monday in New York to discuss financial support for South Korea. The Nikkei Stocks Average closed at 14,775.22. The U-S dollar bought 130.13 yen in mid-afternoon trading, down 0.11 yen from late Friday and also below its late New York rate of 130.41 yen.

The Nikkei rose after no further damage was reported at the crippled nuclear plant in northeast Japan following Thursday night's aftershock. Traders say the Nikkei gained momentum in line with rises in oil and gold prices during Asian trade, with the yen's extended falls against the euro bolstering overall sentiment. Japanese stocks have been buoyant from the morning, supported by a strong performance from major retailers. The Nikkei was also helped by the surge in shares of Tokyo Electric Power, after its stock jumped more than 20 percent. TEPCO rose sharply after Mizuho Securities lowered its target price on the stock to 900 yen, which is still more than double the current level, and rated it (quote) "outperform." Tokyo Electric shares closed up 23.5 percent at 420 yen.

English/Nat Tokyo's Nikkei index tumbled to its lowest close in more than two years on Monday, after worries over the New York and Hong Kong stock markets. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 325.38 points, or 1.87 percent. Brokers believe the downturn was sparked by a hefty fall in New York on Friday and another poor performance in Hong Kong early on Monday. Tokyo share prices tumbled on Monday, dashing hopes of a quick recovery in the Asian markets. The Nikkei closed at 17,038.36 points - its lowest level since August 14, 1995, when the index finished at 16,916.57. The TOPIX, the Tokyo Stock Price Index of all issues listed on the first section, fell 19.24 points, or 1.44 percent, to 1,312.45. The TOPIX had closed down 4.19 points, or 0.31 percent, on Friday. The U-S dollar climbed slightly against the yen. The plunge was partly in reaction to Friday's fall on Wall Street, where the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 132 points after fluctuating wildly, and reflecting fears about the possible impact of Asian economic problems on U-S companies. SOUNDBITE:(English) "On the external side, of course, the fall in New York on Friday had a negative impact and the instability and turmoil in Southeast Asia, especially in Hong Kong market is a very negative fact for the Japanese market." SUPER CAPTION: Mineko Sasaki-Smith, Chief economist, CS First Boston Expectations that a downturn in the U-S market could signal lower profits for major Japanese exporters hurt Sony Corporation and other blue-chip stocks in Tokyo. Economists also pointed to sluggish capital investment, and slow consumer spending in Japan. SOUNDBITE:(English) "And of course capital investment is not going to be growing as rapidly as people initially thought. The stock market's fall and weakening private consumption is beginning to have some impact on that. Production has been weak and of course we know that public spending and public investment as well as housing will continue to be very weak, so that pretty much leaves the exports, the net exports." SUPER CAPTION: Mineko Sasaki-Smith, Chief economist, CS First Boston Hong Kong's performance was another major factor in the Nikkei's poor showing. Hong Kong share prices tumbled sharply on Monday on overseas weakness and currency jitters. Relentless selling further battered Hong Kong stocks in afternoon trade on Monday. Trading wiped out gains made on Friday as investors seized the opportunity to unload more stock. Prices slid as soon as trading resumed after the midday break, with the Hang Seng Index hitting the day's low of 10,377 before recovering to 10,467, down 677 points, or 6.08 percent. Last week, Hong Kong stocks fell after authorities raised interest rates to ward off a speculative attack against its currency.

In our Market Report today:   Asian share markets flirted with recent highs as Japan's Nikkei hit an 8-month peak. The Tokyo benchmark broke through the psychological 10,000 yen level, with oil-linked shares gaining on crude's rise to over $71 a barrel. The Tokyo benchmark has climbed over 40 percent since March, but traders said profit-taking was likely. Recession in the world's No.2 economy has bitten harder than in the U.S. or Europe. But a recent jump in Japanese manufacturing is expected to produce a return to growth this quarter. Nippon Steel says that demand will likely rise 30 percent from July to September as carmakers like Toyota and Honda recover.   And in Australian Fortescue Metals jumped on speculation the nation's No. 3 could be the focus of Chinese bid interest. The stock has gained over 50 percent since miner Rio Tinto scrapped its $19.5 billion tie-up with China's Chinalco.

SOUNDBITE (English) Francis Lun, General Manager, Fulbright Securities: "The optimism over China helped push up A shares, and also helped drive up the H shares today. So, H shares slightly up today, in contrast with the local blue-chips, notably HSBC, and the strength of the H shares actually helped soften the impact of HSBC, so the market is only down about one hundred points, not two or three hundred points, thanks to the H shares." 16. Wide pan of Hong Kong Stock Exchange trading floor STORYLINE: Japan's benchmark Nikkei index closed at a 26-year low on Monday, amid deepening anxiety that economies in the US and elsewhere will take far longer to emerge from recession. The Nikkei 225 stock average lost 87.07 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 7,086.03 - the lowest since 6 October 1982, when the index finished at 6,974.35. The broader Topix index fell 1.5 percent to 710.53, also setting a quarter-century low. Tokyo's stock market dropped after the Ministry of Finance announced a record current account deficit in January that plunged into the red for the first time in 13 years. The ministry said the current account deficit was due to plummeting demand for Japanese exports and a deepening global downturn. The deficit stood at a record 172.8 (b) billion yen (1.8 (b) billion US dollars) in January, far bigger than the previous deficit record of 25.6 (b) billion yen in January 1996, the ministry said. Stocks in Hong Kong also dropped on Monday, with the benchmark Hang Seng Index falling 576.94 points, or 4.84 percent, to close at 11,344.58. Weighing on Hong Kong were steep falls in markets on the China mainland, where investors booked some profits after the government didn't announce new and bigger policies to stimulate the economy at an ongoing legislative meeting. Shanghai's benchmark plummeted 3.4 percent. However, one analyst said that investors were still optimistic about China's economy, which meant that H shares - the shares of mainland companies listed on the Hong Kong exchange - helped prevent a further slide in the Hang Seng. "A shares" are shares of mainland Chinese companies listed within mainland China. Recent losses in Asian markets, while somewhat tame compared to those in the West, have still been severe as investors ratchet down their expectation for global growth in the face of abysmal economic data and signs of ongoing struggles at banks and major international firms.

Wide of exchange interior STORYLINE Japanese stocks rose slightly in early trading on Friday with the benchmark Nikkei up around half a percent. In Tokyo the Nikkei 225 hit 7496.78 in early trading, up around 0.52 percent. The broader Topix index was also slightly up at 745.43, a rise of 0.39 percent. Brokers said the feeling on the stock exchange floor was mixed as investors weighed up bleak economic data showing a sharp fall in industrial production in January and optimism buoyed by the weaker yen, which helps the export-dependent Japanese economy. Industrial production in Japan plunged at a record pace in January as manufacturers continued to slash output amid collapsing global demand, the government said on Friday. Output at Japanese manufacturers tumbled 10 percent from the previous month, the largest drop since Tokyo began measuring such data in 1953. The figure marks the fourth straight month of retreat and is worse than December's 9.8 percent fall. Declines were particularly steep among makers of cars, electronics and general machinery, according to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The government's survey predicts that industrial production will decelerate 8.3 percent in February before climbing 2.8 percent in March. In a separate report, household spending, a key indicator of domestic consumer demand, fell 5.9 percent from a year earlier. Consumer spending accounts for more than half of Japan's gross domestic product. However the government also said on Friday that Japan's jobless rate in the month eased to 4.1 percent and that the core consumer price index excluding fresh food was unchanged from the previous year. Investors were also hopeful that the weaker yen would help Japanese manufacturers and big exporters despite reports on the slowdown.

SHOTLIST 1. Various of Tokyo Stock Exchange trading floor 2. Various of trading board 3. Wide interior of exchange 4. Various of Japanese newspaper headlines STORYLINE Japanese stocks posted strong gains on Wednesday, lifted by an Election Day rally on Wall Street and a weakening yen. The benchmark Nikkei 225 stock average was up 257.07 points, or 2.8 percent, to 9,371.67 at the end of the morning session. The broader Topix index added 4.5 percent at 951.88. In New York, investors believing that Wall Street is on the verge of a year-end rally piled into the market Tuesday, sending the Dow up 3.3 percent to 9,625.28 in its biggest Election Day rally ever. A falling yen boosted shares of major exporters including automakers and consumer electronics firms. Toyota Motor Corp. rose 8.1 percent, Canon Inc. jumped 11.7 percent and Sony Corp. advanced 6.3 percent. The dollar was trading at 99.70 yen Wednesday morning, up from the 98-yen zone the previous day in Asia. Sanyo Electric Co. surged 18 percent after being untraded Tuesday due to a rush of buy orders triggered by weekend reports that the company may be bought by rival Panasonic Corporation. A Sanyo-Panasonic entity would create Japan's biggest electronics maker, surpassing Hitachi Ltd., and would also be among the biggest in the world. Officials from both companies denied Tuesday that any deal has been reached.

What that generally means, since global markets move together more now than they ever have, is when Asia wakes up, they look at what happened in New York, and if New York is down five per cent, pretty much you can be sure Asia's going to be down anywhere from three to seven per cent." 22. Various of electronic share trading display board STORYLINE Asian stock markets tumbled Thursday, following Wall Street lower as U.S. presidential election euphoria gave way to fears of a deep and protracted recession in the world's largest economy. Japanese shares fell sharply in early trade on Thursday, pressured by lingering fears over a global recession as investors looked past Barack Obama's US presidential victory. The benchmark Nikkei 225 stock average dropped 440.59 points, or 4.63 percent, to 9,080.65 as of 9:50 am (0050 GMT) in line with a 5.05-percent fall on Wall Street on Wednesday. Investors also locked in profits after the Nikkei index jumped more than 4 percent the previous day. Tokyo analysts said sentiment turned downbeat in Tokyo as investors sold export-linked shares on the back of a strong yen. A rising yen hurts exporters like Sony and Toyota as it cuts the value of their profits when repatriated to Japan. The broader Topix also shed 4.25 percent to 925.79 in early trade on Thursday. Meanwhile, South Korea's benchmark stock index dropped for the first session in six on Thursday following declines on Wall Street. The won fell 3.6 percent. The Korea Composite Stock Price Index fell 52.19 points, or 4.4 percent, to 1,129.31 within the first hour of trading. The Kospi at one point had declined as much as 5.3 percent. The Kospi has declined 40 percent so far this year as foreign investors have fled South Korean stocks. The outbreak of the global financial crisis accelerated losses at one point to over 50 percent. A series of policy measures by the South Korean government and recent gains on Wall Street, however, have helped stabilise local stocks. The Kospi had risen for five straight sessions through Wednesday. The South Korean won fell to 1,313.20 against the dollar. The South Korean currency has now fallen nearly 29 percent against the greenback so far this year as stocks have declined. Also on Thursday, Hong Kong stocks slumped in morning trading, reversing Wednesday's post-election gains.

(4 Jan 2017) The Tokyo Stock Exchange opened on Wednesday for its first trading session of the year with a traditional bell ringing ceremony.

English/Nat Japan's benchmark stock index rose on Thursday to its highest closing level so far this year on continued buying by foreign investors. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 1-point-77 per cent, closing at 16,846-point-69. On Wednesday, the average had closed up by point-45 per cent, its previous highest close this year. Analysts hailed the market climb, but cautioned investors against seeing an early turnaround in the Japanese economy. Tokyo share prices started lower on profit-taking following recent gains. But the market later turned into positive territory with active buying of steel and information-related stocks. That left the Nikkei Stock Average up 292-point-19 points, a 1-point-77 per cent climb that was the highest so far this year. On Wednesday, the average closed up 74-point-79 points, to 16,554-point-50, this year's previous record. Analysts said the market was also buoyed by an overnight surge in New York, and cautioned against seeing the boost as the start of a long term trend. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'd be very surprised if it goes on for much longer, the simple reason being that it's difficult to see any sustained economic growth in Japan. There is some good news here right now, but it may only relate to restructuring of the economy. Now that's a good thing in the long term context, but it also can be very painful in terms of the short term dynamics of the economy. And my sense is that Japanese economic growth will remain negative for another couple of years at least." SUPER CAPTION: Russel Jones, Chief Economist, Lehman Brothers Meanwhile the Bank of Japan has announced that the domestic wholesale price index for March was the lowest since July 1979. While prices of agricultural, livestock and fishery products increased, those of chemicals, electrical machinery, and paper products fell. A fall in petroleum and coal product prices also contributed to the drop in the domestic price index. The continued decline in prices has underscored increasing deflationary pressure in Japan, with domestic wholesale prices effectively dropping for the seventh consecutive fiscal year. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'd be very surprised if wholesale prices and for that matter consumer prices started to increase in a sustained way for the foreseeable future. There's just too much excess capacity around in the Japanese economy. There's too little pricing power for companies, and economic policy at this stage is not really expansionary enough to turn around those trends." SUPER CAPTION: Russel Jones, Chief Economist, Lehman Brothers The U-S dollar advanced against the yen during Thursday's trading. The dollar bought 121-point-18 yen at mid-afternoon, up point-40 yen from late Wednesday in Tokyo but below its late New York level of 121-point-35 overnight.
