Japan escapes censure on the G-20 meeting
he G-20 communiqué provied little fresh headlines to market participants, with the main take away on FX-relate news being the permissive stance towards Japan's monetary policies to beat deflation. The G20 communiqué is basically echoing the same position by the G7 back in February. As noted by Eamonn Sheridan of Forexlive: "Leading into the G20 meeting market concern was that Japan would come under fire for its deflation-fighting policies (which have, as a side-effect, a weaker yen or are have as a central component the aim of a weaker yen, depending on your point of view). It became clear on Friday that Japan had escaped censure from the G20 over its policies, a position made officially clear at the conclusion of the meetings."
The section in the G20 communique that makes references to currencies, stated: "We reiterate our commitments to move more rapidly toward more market-determined exchange rate systems and exchange rate flexibility to reflect underlying fundamentals, and avoid persistent exchange rate misalignments. We will refrain from competitive devaluation and will not target our exchange rates for competitive purposes, and we will resist all forms of protectionism and keep our markets open." It added: "We reiterate that excess volatility of financial flows and disorderly movements in exchange rates have adverse implications for economic and financial stability. Monetary policy should be directed toward domestic price stability and continuing to support economic recovery according to the respective mandates of central banks. We will be mindful of unintended negative side effects stemming from extended periods of monetary easing."-Fxstreet.com
