Solig Gold ~ Bursa saham Tokyo melemah, setelah yen melonjak

Bursa saham Tokyo melemah, dengan indeks acuan ekuitas menuju level terendah dalam hampir tiga minggu terakhir, setelah yen melonjak menyusul keputusan dari kebijakan Bank of Japan dan karena data menunjukkan ekonomi AS tumbuh kurang dari yang diharapkan pada kuartal terakhir.

Indeks Topix melemah 1,5 persen menjadi 1,302.73 pada pukul 09:10 pagi di Tokyo, berada di jalur untuk penutupan terendah sejak 13 Juli. Perusahaan otomotif dan produsen alat listrik menyeret turun indeks. Sementara Nikkei 225 Stock Average merosot 1,3 persen. Yen melemah 0,3 persen menjadi 102,35 per dolar setelah menguat 3,1 persen pada hari Jumat, terbesar sejak Inggris memilih untuk meninggalkan Uni Eropa.

Indeks Topix turun 16 persen dalam tahun ini sampai pada hari Kamis, sebelum pengumuman kebijakan BOJ, dengan banyak dari penurunan tersebut muncul setelah bank sentral memperkenalkan suku bunga negatif pada bulan Januari. Indeks saham-saham bank jatuh 34 persen sampai pada hari Kamis, sementara yen menguat 14 persen terhadap dolar. Saham-saham keuangan memimpin kenaikan pada hari Jumat, dengan saham Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc melonjak 7,7 persen.(Solig Gold )

Japan Stocks Retreat After Yen Jumps as Exporters Weigh on Topix

Shares in Tokyo fell, with the benchmark equity index heading toward its lowest level in almost three weeks, after the yen jumped following the Bank of Japan�s policy decision and as data showed the U.S. economy grew less than expected last quarter.

The Topix index retreated 1.5 percent to 1,302.73 as of 9:10 a.m. in Tokyo, on course for its lowest close since July 13. Carmakers and electrical-appliance manufacturers were the biggest drags on the gauge. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average sank 1.3 percent. The yen lost 0.3 percent to 102.35 per dollar after strengthening 3.1 percent on Friday, the most since Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The BOJ said it will almost double its annual exchange-traded fund purchases to 6 trillion yen ($59 billion) on Friday while leaving bond buying and its negative deposit rate unchanged, whipsawing Japanese equity markets as financial shares surged while real estate companies slumped.

The Topix fell 16 percent this year through Thursday, before the BOJ policy announcement, with much of that decline coming after the central bank introduced negative interest rates in January. A gauge of bank shares plunged 34 percent through Thursday, while the yen strengthened 14 percent against the dollar. Financial shares led gains on Friday, with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. surging 7.7 percent.(Solig Gold )
