solid gold berjangka ~ Nikkei Melemah Karena Yen Menguat Terhadap Lemahnya Data AS

solid gold berjangka ~ Saham-saham Jepang dibuka turun pada Rabu pagi setelah eksportir dan saham cyclical lainnya tertekan oleh penguatan yen karena lemahnya aktivitas sektor jasa AS memupus harapan untuk kenaikan suku bunga jangka pendek dari Federal Reserve AS.

Nikkei turun 0,8 persen menjadi 16,954.46 pada perdagangan menjelang siang, turun dari level tertinggi tiga bulan yang di capai awal pekan ini.

Indeks Topix turun 0,8 persen menjadi 1,342.09 dan Indeks JPX-Nikkei 400 turun 0,9 persen menjadi 12,055.67.

Dolar melemah 0,5 persen menjadi 101,50 yen setelah sebelumnya tergelincir ke level terendah dari 101,245, terlemah sejak 26 Agustus

Jual Dolar dipicu setelah indeks aktivitas non-manufaktur Institute for Supply Management turun ke 51,4, level terendah sejak Februari 2010, hampir menutup pintu terkait peningkatan suku bunga The Fed pada awal bulan ini.

Juga melonjaknya sentimen adalah laporan di surat kabar Sankei yang mengatakan pembuat kebijakan Bank of Japan terbagi menjelang pertemuan bank sentral tanggal 20-21 September mendatang, di mana Gubernur BOJ Haruhiko Kuroda mengatakan bahwa dewan akan melakukan penilaian yang komprehensif dari program stimulus besar-besaran.(frk)

Japanese stocks dropped on Wednesday morning after exporters and other cyclical shares were hit by a rising yen as weak U.S. service sector activity dashed expectations for a near-term interest rate increase from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

The Nikkei fell 0.8 percent to 16,954.46 in midmorning trade, retreating from a three-month high hit earlier this week.

The broader Topix dropped 0.8 percent to 1,342.09 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 fell 0.9 percent to 12,055.67.

The dollar declined 0.5 percent to 101.50 yen after slipping to a low of 101.245 earlier, its weakest since Aug. 26.

The dollar-selling was triggered after the Institute for Supply Management’s index of non-manufacturing activity fell to 51.4, its lowest level since February 2010, virtually shutting the door on the Fed raising rates as early as this month.

Also souring sentiment was a report in the Sankei newspaper saying Bank of Japan policymakers were divided ahead of the central bank’s Sept. 20-21 meeting, at which BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has said the board will conduct a comprehensive assessment of its massive stimulus programme.
